Illinois Pollution Control Board Provides Regulatory and Case Update

The Illinois Pollution Control Board recently published its Environmental Register for January 2019 on its website.  The Board is an independent five-member Board that adopts environmental control regulations and decides enforcement actions and other environmental cases in the State of Illinois.  As usual, the Environmental Register contains an update from the chairperson of the Board, Katie Papadimitriu, a rulemaking update, an appellate update, a summary of actions of the Board, the Board’s upcoming calendar, and lists of restrictive status and crucial review for community water supplies.  The Board has been very active since the last issue of the Environmental Register in October of 2018.

For example, the Board held several hearings on rulemaking proceedings, including rules on potentially infectious medical waste, general use water quality standards for chloride, and procedures for a State Prevention of Significant Deterioration (“PSD”) permit program.  The Board has adopted regulations concerning noise pollution, hazardous waste, and site-specific water quality standards for a segment of the Sangamon River.  To view a copy of the Environmental Register for January 2019, click here.
