Settlement of State Enforcement Action Alleging Asbestos-Related Violations

The Illinois Pollution Control Board recently accepted the parties’ stipulation and proposed settlement in People v. Schultz, PCB 09-74, which concerned the defendant’s property located at 400 N. Ninth Street, Springfield, Sangamon County, Illinois.  The property is a commercial building (Building T), formerly a part of St. John’s Hospital of the Sisters of the Third Order of St. Francis.

The State alleged that the defendant violated the Illinois Environmental Protection Act and environmental regulations by not providing timely advance notification of renovation; failing to properly wet, collect, and deposit “regulated asbestos-containing material” (RACM); improperly disposing of RACM; and by failing to have a person properly trained in NESHAPs requirements present during the renovation activities.

According to the terms of the settlement, the defendant admits the alleged violations and agrees to pay a civil penalty of $7,000.00.
