IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING FEE RATES

The Fiscal Year 2014 General Appropriations Act includes provisions requiring the Department of Environmental Protection to adopt emergency regulations to increase existing permit and compliance assurance fees adopted under section 18 of chapter 21A and section 3B of chapter 21E of the General Laws to reflect the increase in the consumer price index (CPI) since 2004, the fiscal year in which most of these fees were last adjusted. In response to this action, many of MassDEP fee rates have increased as of August 8, 2013. Please use the link below to view the updated fee rate tables since some permit applications and other documents have not yet been updated to reflect these changes.
