Illinois Pollution Control Board Announces Appointments & Other News

The Illinois Pollution Control Board recently issued its Environmental Register for August 2017.  The Board has the authority to adopt environmental standards and regulations for the State of Illinois and to adjudicate contested cases arising from the Illinois Environmental Protection Act and its implementing regulations.

The Environmental Register summarizes the Board’s work for the past seven months and provides a rulemaking update, summary of actions of the Board, the Board’s calendar, and listings of community water supplies that have been designated with the labels “restricted status” or critical review”.  Most importantly, the Board announced that Board member Katie Papadimitriu assumed the role of Chairman in May 2017, and Brenda Carter (former Deputy Executive Director of the Illinois Environmental Regulatory Group) was appointed to the Board by Governor Rauner.  IERG is a pro-business advocacy group on environmental matters and, therefore, Ms. Carter’s pick would increase the representation of the business community’s interests on the Board.
