Dust control forms and regulations

The Department of Public Health monitors dust control at construction and demolition sites. Contractors whose work might put dust into the air must follow the City’s regulations.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) also regulates the removal, collection, transportation, and disposal of asbestos-containing materials. For more information, including notification forms, visit the DEP’s asbestos webpage.
