Fiore v. Commonwealth

ELR Citation: 16 ELR 20874
Nos. No. 3642 C.D. 1984, 510 A.2d 880/(Pa. Commw. Ct., 06/09/1986)

The court rules that a notice of violation of the Pennsylvania Solid Waste Management Act issued by the Department of Environmental Resources is not an appealable final agency action or adjudication. The notice is not an appealable action since, by itself, it does not affect the recipient's rights. Even if a notice of violation inevitably leads to the denial of a permit, the recipient's rights are not affected until the permit is denied. Further, denial is not the inevitable result when a notice of violation is issued. The recipient is free to show that the violation has been corrected.
