$16,000 Settlement of State Enforcement Action Alleging CCDD Violations

On April 15th, the Illinois Pollution Control Board accepted the parties’ settlement in People v. R.A. Cullian & Sons, Inc., No. PCB 09-105, which concerned the defendant’s clean construction and demolition debris (“CCDD”) fill operation at the Farmdale Pit facility, located at 22493 Farmdale Road, in East Peoria, Tazewell County, Illinois.

The State alleged that the defendant violated the Illinois Environmental Protection Act by allowing waste material that does not meet the definition of CCDD to commingle with the facility’s CCDD fill material, failing to inspect incoming loads of clean construction and demolition debris at the site with a photo ionization detector (PID) device, failing to maintain CCDD records for the facility, and disposing of CCDD without a permit.

As part of the terms of the settlement, the defendant admits the alleged violations and agrees to pay a civil penalty of $16,000.
