Environmental Register for October 2011

The Illinois Pollution Control Board, which has offices in Chicago and Springfield, Illinois, recently issued its Environmental Register for October 2011.  The Environmental Register features a letter from new Board Chairman Thomas Holbrook, which discusses Mr. Holbrook’s background, the appointment of Dr. Deanna Glosser to the Board, and the departure of Board Member Andrea Moore.

The Environmental Register contains updated information about environmental law for attorneys and the public.  It contains an appellate update, including summaries of the recent Illinois Supreme Court case of Sierra Club v. Illinois Pollution Control Board, as well as a nonpublished appellate court opinion concerning a state enforcement action alleging open dumping.  The publication also contains an update on enhanced vehicle emission inspection and maintenance regulations, underground injection control regulations, regulations governing financial assurance requirements for nonhazardous solid waste landfill regulations, volatile organic material emissions control regulations, and new procedural rules for landscape waste and compost authorizations.

The Environmental Register also contains a summary of actions of the Board, a summary of new cases, a list of provisional variances, the Board’s calendar, and restricted status and critical review lists of public water supplies.
