Individual Settles State Water Enforcement Action for $12,000

The Illinois Pollution Control Board recently accepted the parties’ settlement of People v. Rawson, Case No. PCB 09-91, which concerned a sanitary sewer and potable water lines to service future residential subdivisions in the City of Crystal Lake, McHenry County, Illinois.

The State alleged that the Rawson violated state environmental laws by “by causing, threatening, or allowing the discharge of a contaminant into the environment so as to cause or tend to cause water pollution; by depositing contaminants onto the land so as to create a water pollution hazard; and by allowing storm water discharges in violation the general National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) storm water permit for construction site activities.”

Under the settlement terms, Rawson did not affirmatively admit the alleged violations but agreed to pay a civil penalty of $12,000.
