FOURTH DISTRICT AFFIRMS DENIAL OF ADJUSTED
STANDARD; PETITIONER DID NOT MEET BURDEN ON ANY OF
THE STATUTORY CRITERIA
In the recent Rule 23 order in
Illinois Power Co. v. PCB
(4th Dist.
Sep. 12, 1994, No 4-93-0959), the Fourth District Appellate Court
affirmed the Board's denial of an adjusted standard. The court held
that the Board's decision in Docket AS 92-7 was not arbitrary and
capricious, and that the petitioner had failed to meet its burden of
proof on all statutory criteria required to justify an adjusted standard.
The petitioner sought an adjusted standard for sulfate, boron, and
total dissolved solids in the discharges from its ash pond. The
petitioner has discharged its effluent into the Middle Fork of the
Vermilion River since 1955. The effluent limitations imposed on the
discharges were predicated on achieving the general use water
quality standards. The sulfate and total dissolved solids limitations
sought were only slightly higher than those already imposed by the
existing discharge permit, but that sought for boron was several
times higher than that imposed by the permit. The Illinois EPA
(Agency) recommended that the Board grant an adjusted standard
and set forth recommended limitations very similar to those sought
by the petitioner. The Illinois Department of Conservation (IDOC)
also supported the relief.
The Middle Fork is protected to preserve its "outstanding natural,
scenic, recreational, ecological, historical, and archeological value"
under the Vermilion River Middle Fork Act. IDOC is charged with
the responsibility of maintaining and preserving the river by
regulation. (615 ILCS 95.) The segment of the river into which the
petitioner discharges is federally-protected under the National Wild
and Scenic Rivers Act. (16 U.S.C. §§ 1271
et seq.
) The Committee
on the Middle Fork of the Vermilion River and the Illinois Chapter of
the Sierra Club participated in the adjusted standard proceeding,
opposing a grant of relief from the existing standards.
The Board denied the relief sought. The Board concluded that
the record did not support the adjusted standard requested. It
observed that the representations of the petitioner, the Agency, and
IDOC notwithstanding, the record indicated that the existing
discharges may have caused adverse impacts on the stream at
levels below those of the requested adjusted standard. Further,
although the petitioner sought to maintain existing discharges with
no degradation of effluent quality, in the Board's opinion, the
requested adjusted standard for boron would have constituted a
more relaxed standard for boron.
On appeal, the issues related solely to the merits of the Board's
denial of relief. Citing authority, the Third District prefaced its
opinion by stating that whether the Board's decision was arbitrary or
capricious is determined with reference to whether the Board (1)
improperly relied on factors that the General Assembly did not
intend, (2) entirely failed to consider an important aspect, (3) or
offered an explanation that ran counter to the evidence or that was
"so implausible that it could not be attributed to a difference in view
or the product of agency expertise". The court then proceeded with
its analysis, considering each of the four statutory considerations of
Section 28.1(c) in turn ((1) "substantially and significantly different"
factors, (2) justification for relief, (3) no adverse impact, and (4)
consistency with federal law). The court stated that "the failure of
the petitioner to prove any one of those elements would support the
denial of the adjustment to the existing standards."
The court's analysis on each criterion examined the Board's
rationale and the evidence of record. The court observed that the
Board's decision was not arbitrary and capricious merely because
contrary inferences were possible from the evidence, nor because
the Board did not weigh the evidence in a way pleasing to the
petitioner. The court stated, "The only way the decision becomes

Page
Page 2
2/ October, 1994
/ October, 1994
Environmental Register No. 487
Environmental Register No. 487
arbitrary and capricious is if the petitioner can convince this court
that, by not mentioning the evidence, the Board never considered
it." On each factor, the court concluded that the record could have
supported the Board's determination. Thus, the Board's
determination was not arbitrary or capricious on any of the four
statutory factors.
SECOND DISTRICT AFFIRMS ADMINISTRATIVE CITATIONS,
HOLDS THAT CITATION CAN ISSUE AGAINST A LANDFILL
OPERATOR, THE BOARD CANNOT MITIGATE PENALTY
IMPOSED, AND STATE'S ATTORNEY'S FEES WERE
PROPERLY ASSESSED
In
Rochelle Disposal Service, Inc. v. PCB
(2d Dist. Sept. 2, 1994,
Nos. 2-93-0540 & 2-93-0694, consolidated) (affirming AC 91-45 &
AC 92-26) and
Rochelle Disposal Service, Inc. v. PCB
(2d Dist.
Sept. 16, 1994, Nos. 2-93-1006, 2-93-1383 & 2-93-1384,
consolidated) (affirming AC 92-64, AC 91-32 & AC 92-26), the
Second District Appellate Court affirmed the Board's decisions in
imposing penalties and fees in five separate administrative citation
actions. The actions arose through a series of inspections
conducted by Ogle County at a landfill owned by the City of
Rochelle, in whose name the facility permits issued. Rochelle
Disposal operates the facility under contract with the City. The Ogle
County State's Attorney issued the administrative citations
challenged. The issues raised on appeal were similar in both
consolidated cases, and the Second District rejected all the
arguments in both. The decision that affirmed AC 92-64, AC 91-32,
and AC 92-26 was a Rule 23 order.
The court rejected arguments that a landfill operator that did not
hold the permit for the site was not a propoer named respondent.
The operator argued that an administrative citation could issue only
against the holder of the facility permit. Looking to the use of the
word "person" in the preamble language of the Section 21
prohibitions violated, the court found the language clear. It
concluded that there is no limitation in the Environmental Protection
Act that onlly a permit holder is a proper named respondent for an
administrative citation. The court observed that the respondent was
actually operating the landfill, and opined that the General Assembly
did not intend an enforcement loophole for an operator that did not
hold the facility permit.
In both cases and as to all five citations, the Second District
weighed arguments that the Board's imposition of the penalty was
against the manifest weight of the evidence. The court noted in
both decisions (citing
Caliendo v. Martin
(1st Dist. 1993), 250 Ill.
App. 3d 409, 416, 620 N.E.2d 1318, 1324), "We will find an
agency's decision to be against the manifest weight of the evidence
only if it can be determined from the record that all reasonable and
unbiased persons, acting within the limits provided by the law and
drawing all inferences in support of the finding, would agree that the
finding is erroneous." It held in both cases that the records included
sufficient evidence from which the Board could conclude that the
violations occurred.
In the decision affirming AC 91-45 and AC 92-26, the court cited
authority for the proposition that "circumstantial evidence will suffice
whenever an inference may be reasonably drawn from it, and the
use of circumstantial evidence is not limited to those instances in
which the circumstances support only one logical conclusion."
Thus, the court accepted that circumstantial evidence of conditions
at the site after the alleged violations supported a Board conclusion
contrary to the respondent's inconsistent direct testimony of events
at the site.
In both decisions, the court confronted whether the Board has a
duty to mitigate the penalty based on circumstances. It looked to
the mandatory nature of the language of Section 42(b)(4) and the
lack of express language relating to mitigation in the administrative
citation provision, such as appears in Section 42(h) with regard to
general enforcement actions. It held that the Board is thoroughly
without authority to mitigate the penalty imposed in administrative
citation actions.
The respondent also argued in both cases that the Board should
have determined that there was no violation because the violations
occurred due to "uncontrollable circumstances", pursuant to Section
31.1(d)(2) of the Act. Examining the evidence, the court noted that
"there was no evidence presented at hearing" as to why the
respondent did not engage in certain measures used in the past to
avoid a violation. It held that the Board's decision on the issue of
uncontrollable circumstances was not against the manifest weight of
the evidence.
Finally, the respondent challenged the Board's imposition of
attorney's fees in the decision that affirmed AC 92-64, AC 91-32,
and AC 92-26. The respondent cited Section 42(f) of the Act for the
proposition that the violation must have been wilful, knowing, or
repeated to support an award of attorney's fees. The court held that
these factors do not apply under Section 31.1, which provides for
administrative citations. The court further rejected the argument
that the Board could not award fees because the action was not
filed in the name of the "People of the State of Illinois".
RULE
RULEMAKING UPDATE
MAKING UPDATE
PART I 15% ROP PLAN FOR VOM EMISSIONS ADOPTED;
PART II AND III PLANS PROPOSED FOR SECOND NOTICE;
PART IV PLAN SET FOR HEARING AND PROPOSED FOR
FIRST NOTICE, R94-12, R94-15, R94-16 & R94-21
On September 15, 1994, the Board undertook four separate
actions relating to four different parts of the Illinois 15 percent
reduction of pollution (15% ROP) plan. The Agency has filed four
separate 15% ROP Plan proposals to date, which the Board is
dealing with under four separate docket numbers. In sum, all the
ROP plan segments would seek a 15 percent 1990 VOM emissions
levels in the Chicago and Metro-East St. Louis areas, in order to
fulfill requirements under the federal Clean Air Act (CAA). The state
is federally required to reduce VOM emissions by 159 tons per day
(tpd) in the Chicago area and by 36 tpd in the Metro-East area.
(See issues 483, June, 1994; 484, July, 1994; 485, Aug., 1994 &
486, Sept., 1994.)
The Board accepted each of the four 15% ROP plan rulemaking
proposals pursuant to the "fast-track" rulemaking provisions of
Section 28.5 of the Environmental Protection Act (Act). Section
28.5 requires the Board to proceed within set time-frames toward
the adoption of the proposed amendments. The Board lacks any
discretion under the statute to adjust these time-frames under any

Environmental Register No. 487

circumstances. Under Section 28.5(o), the Board must have
adopted the proposal for Second Notice within 130 days on receipt
of the proposal from the Agency. Section 28.5(p) requires that the
Board must adopt and file final rules based on the proposal within
21 days of when it receives a Certificate of No Objection from
JCAR.
Part I Proposal, R94-12
The Board adopted amendments based on the Agency's Part I
ROP plan rulemaking proposal under docket R94-12. The
amendments revised the volatile organic material (VOM) emissions
regulations to require the use of pressure-vacuum relief valves on
vent tubes at gasoline dispensing operations in both the Chicago
and Metro-East areas. The amendments also require a lowering of
the Reid vapor pressure (RVP) on gasoline from 9.0 psi to 7.2 psi in
the Metro-East area. (Section 211(k) of the CAA will already require
this RVP reduction in the Chicago area.) The Agency indicated in
filing the Part I proposal that the use of pressure-vacuum relief
valves will reduce emissions by 4 tpd in the Chicago area and by
0.4 tpd in the Metro-East area. The use of 7.2 RVP fuel will reduce
emissions 8.5 tpd in the Metro-East St. Louis area.
The Agency filed the Part I proposal on April 24, 1994. The
Board proposed the amendments for First Notice publication in the
Illinois Register
without substantive review on May 5, 1994. The
Board held a public hearing on the proposal on June 17, 1994. The
Board cancelled two later scheduled hearings because the level of
public interest did not warrant conducting them. The Board
proposed amendments based on the proposal for Second Notice
review by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules (JCAR) on
August 11, 1994. Direct questions on the Part I proposal to Michael
J. McCambridge, at 312-814-6924. Please refer to docket R94-12.
Part II Proposal, R94-15
The Board proposed amendments for Second Notice review by
JCAR based on the Agency's Part II ROP plan proposal under
docket R94-15. The proposed Part II amendments contemplate
extending VOM emissions control measures to the loading of
marine vessels and deletion of the exemption for barge loading from
the regulations applicable to "Miscellaneous Fabricated Product
Manufacturing Processes", "Miscellaneous Formulated
Manufacturing Processes", "Miscellaneous Organic Chemical
Manufacturing Processes", and "Other Emissions Units" source
categories. The record indicated that the Part II proposal would
reduce the VOM emissions by 1.3 tpd in the Chicago area and by
11.82 tpd in the Metro-East area. At the special Board meeting of
September 28, 1994, in response to a joint motion filed September
23 by the Agency and the Illinois Environmental Regulatory Group
(IERG), the Board made minor modifications to segments of the
proposed amendments, to restore existing text originally proposed
for deletion.
The Agency filed the Part II proposal with the Board on May 26,
1994. The Board held public hearings on the proposal on July 12
and August 9, 1994 in Collinsville. On June 2, 1994, the Board
proposed a new Clean Air Act (CAA) rulemaking for First Notice
publication in the
Illinois Register
. The Board cancelled a third
scheduled hearing because the level of public interest did not
warrant holding it. The Board will be free to adopt amendments
based on the Part II proposal when it receives a Certificate of No
Objection from JCAR or when 45 days have elapsed from when
JCAR receives the proposal for Second Notice review, whichever
comes first. Direct questions on the Part II proposal to Marie E.
Tipsord, at 312-814-4925 or 618-498-9803. Please refer to docket
R94-15.
Part III Proposal, R94-16
The Board proposed amendments for Second Notice review by
JCAR based on the Agency's Part III ROP plan proposal under
docket R94-16. The proposed Part III amendments contemplate
making the standards of Parts 218 and 219, Subpart B, "Organic
Emissions from Storage and Loading Operations", and Subpart V,
"Total Resource Effectiveness" (TRE), more stringent. The
proposed Part III plan rules would add the federal Control
Technology Guidelines (CTG) and Alternative Control Technology
(ACT) recommended controls for volatile organic liquids (VOLs) and
volatile petroleum liquids (VPLs). The Agency anticipates that the
TRE amendments will reduce VOM emissions by 4.05 tpd in the
metropolitan Chicago area by 1996 and by an additional 1.58 tpd by
1999. The VOL/VPL amendments are anticipated to reduce the
VOM emissions by 2.18 tpd in the Chicago area. The Agency
expects no reductions in the Metro-East area.
The Agency filed the Part III ROP plan proposal on June 15,
1994. The Board proposed the Part III amendments for First Notice
publication in the
Illinois Register
on June 23, 1994. The Board
conducted a public hearing on the Part III plan on August 4, 1994 in
Chicago. The Board cancelled two later scheduled hearings
because the level of public interest did not warrant conducting them.
The Board will be free to adopt amendments based on the Part II
proposal when it receives a Certificate of No Objection from JCAR
or when 45 days have elapsed from when JCAR receives the
proposal for Second Notice review, whichever comes first. Direct
questions on the Part II proposal to Diane F. O'Neill, at 312-814-
6062. Please refer to docket R94-16.
Part IV Proposal, R94-21
The Agency filed the Part IV ROP plan proposal on September
12, 1994. The Board proposed the Part IV plan amendments for
First Notice publication in the
Illinois Register
on September 15,
1994. The Board has scheduled three hearings on the proposal, as
described in the following paragraph. The Part IV proposal
contemplates lowering the VOM content of coatings for several
categories of surface coaters: the can, paper, coil, fabric, vinyl,
metal furniture, baked large appliance, and miscellaneous parts and
products coating categories. The Part IV proposal would also
impose reductions in VOM emissions from sources in the
automotive/transportation and business machine plastic parts
coating categories that exceed specified emissions levels. The
proposal would further make the VOM emissions limits applicable to
wood furniture coating operations at a lowered threshold. The Part
IV proposal would also require specified controls on synthetic
organic chemical manufacturing industry (SOCMI) distillation and
reactor processes and on bakery industry ovens. Finally, the
amendments would make a number of minor amendments and
corrections to the regulations, largely in response to comments
submitted by U.S. EPA and affected entities. At the special Board
meeting of September 28, 1994, in response to a motion filed
September 20 by the Agency, the Board made a minor modification

Page
Page 4
4/ October, 1994
/ October, 1994
Environmental Register No. 487
Environmental Register No. 487
to the proposed amendments, to renumber a Section to
accommodate an existing Section already bearing that number.
The Agency stated that it contemplates that the coatings
operations amendments would reduce VOM emissions by 10.16 tpd
in the Chicago area and by 0.39 tpd in the Metro-East area. It
estimated that the automotive/transportation surface coating
aspects of the proposal would reduce VOM emissions by 0.28 tpd in
the Chicago area, but it anticipates no reductions in the Metro-East
area. The Agency anticipated no VOM reductions from either of the
wood furniture coating or the SOCMI amendments in the Chicago or
the Metro-East areas. Rather, the Agency included the wood
furniture coating controls to avoid expected future increases in
emissions and the SOCMI amendments to incorporate a new
federal control technology guideline (CTG) as RACT. The Agency
expects a 0.98 tpd reduction in VOM emissions in the Chicago area
and no reduction in the Metro-East area from the bakery oven
amendments.
The Board has scheduled three days of public hearings on the
Part IV ROP plan proposal. The statute requires the Board to
schedule three hearing dates, each for a prescribed purpose. The
first day of hearing is reserved for presentations by the Agency and
questions of Agency witnesses. The second scheduled day of
hearing, if it occurs, is reserved for presentations by affected entities
and all other interested persons. The third scheduled day of
hearing, if it occurs, is reserved for any Agency response and
responses of other parties. The hearings will be continued from day
to day, as necessary, until all business is completed. However, the
second and third hearing dates are subject to cancellation if the
level of public interest and participation so warrant. The Board has
scheduled hearings to occur at the James R. Thompson Center,
100 West Randolph Street, Chicago, as follows:
Room 9-040: 10:00 a.m., Friday, November 4, 1994
Room 9-025: 10:00 a.m., Friday, December 2, 1994
Room 9-040: 10:00 a.m., Friday, December 16, 1994
Direct questions on the Part IV proposal to Marie E. Tipsord, at 312-
814-4925 or 618-498-9803. Please refer to docket R94-21.
UST RULES ADOPTED, R94-2(A)
On September 15, 1994, the Board adopted regulations for
underground storage tank remedial actions under docket number
R94-2(A). The rules implement the extensive amendments to the
LUST program adopted in P.A. 88-496.
(Issues 475, Oct. 6, 1993;
481, Apr., 1994 & 482, June, 1994.)
They establish requirements
for LUST remediation and reimbursement. The regulations include
provisions applicable to remediation of LUST sites, administration of
the state's LUST reimbursement fund, reimbursement from the fund
for costs of investigation and remediation, and for the audit of
corrective action efforts. The Board was required by P.A. 88-496 to
adopt final rules for the administration of the Illinois LUST program
by September 15, 1994.
The Illinois EPA (Agency), pursuant to the mandate of P.A. 88-
496, developed its regulatory proposal in conjunction with the
Underground Storage Tank Advisory Committee and filed it with the
Board on March 15, 1994. The Board adopted a proposal for First
Notice publication in the
Illinois Register
on March 17, 1994. The
Board conducted five public hearings, concluding on June 8, 1994.
At the hearings, the Agency and other participants, including the
UST Advisory Committee, the Illinois Environmental Regulatory
Group (IERG), the Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association, the
Illinois Petroleum Council, and the Illinois Department of
Transportation, offered testimony on the Agency proposal. The
Board adopted an interim opinion and order on August 1, to allow
additional public comments before adopting a proposal for Second
Notice review by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules
(JCAR). The Board proposed the rules for Second Notice JCAR
review on August 11, 1994.
(See issue 486, Sept., 1994.)
Simultaneously to proposing the rules for Second Notice on
August 11, in response to the requests of several participants and a
formal motion by IERG to sever the docket, the Board created a
separate sub-docket B to consider generic clean-up objectives and
alternative methodologies for determining objectives. Direct
questions to Musette Vogel, at 217-524-8509. Please refer to
docket R94-2.
STEEL AND FOUNDRY LANDFILL AMENDMENTS ADOPTED,
R90-26(B)
On September 1, 1994, the Board adopted certain amendments
to the landfill regulations. The rulemaking, subdocket B of the R90-
26 steel and foundry waste landfill amendments, augment
amendments adopted in the parent docket, subdocket A, on July
21, 1994. The parent rulemaking, R90-26(A), established a set of
landfill regulations specific to certain wastes generated by the steel
and foundry industries. (
See issues 475, Oct. 6, 1993; 478, Jan. 1,
1994; 481, Apr., 1994; 482, May, 1994 & 485, August, 1994.
) The
proponents of the amendments are members of the industries that
generate the wastes at issue.
The subdocket B proposed amendments added a new provision
to the proposed rules relating to facility location. The Board opened
subdocket B in response to requests by the Illinois Steel Group and
the Illinois Cast Metal Association, the proponents of the steel and
foundry waste landfill amendments. On March 31, 1994, the Board
proposed the subdocket B amendments for First Notice publication
in the
Illinois Register
and proposed them for Second Notice review
by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules on June 23, 1994.
(See issues 481, Apr., 1994 & 484, Aug., 1994.)
Direct questions to Kathleen M. Crowley, at 312-814-6929.
Please refer to docket R90-26.
LANDSCAPE WASTE COMPOST FACILITIES RULES
PROPOSED FOR SECOND NOTICE, R93-29
On September 15, 1994, the Board proposed rules for Second
Notice Review by the Joint Committee on Administrative Rules
(JCAR) that would regulate landscape waste management facilities
in Illinois. The proposed rules would establish performance
standards for landscape compost facilities and testing procedures
and standards for end-product compost derived from landscape
waste and offered for sale or use in Illinois.
The Board formally accepted a December 30, 1993 proposal for
landscape waste facilities from the Illinois EPA (Agency) on January
20, 1994. (
See issue 479, Feb., 1994.
) The Board conducted a
public hearing on the proposal on April 15 and proposed the rules

Environmental Register No. 487
Environmental Register No. 487
October, 1994/Page
October, 1994/Page 5

for First Notice publication in the
Illinois Register
on June 30, 1994.
See issue 484, July, 1994.
) This proceeding is one of three
mandated by the Act. Section 22.33 requires that the Agency
proposed standards for composting landscape wastes on or before
January 1, 1994, and that the Board adopt such standards by
December 1, 1994. Sections 22.34 and 22.35 set forth similar
mandates relating to composting organic waste and mixed
municipal waste, and Section 22.35. The R93-29 proposal
addresses only the Section 22.33 mandate.
The Board will be free to adopt regulations based on the
proposed rules when either the Second Notice period ends, 45 days
after JCAR received the Second Notice package, or upon receipt of
a Certificate of No Objection from JCAR. Direct questions to Kevin
G. Desharnais, at 312-814-6929. Please refer to docket R93-29.
PROCEDURAL RULES FOR APPEALS FROM STATE FIRE
MARSHALL DETERMINATIONS PROPOSED FOR SECOND
NOTICE, R94-11
On September 15, 1994, the Board proposed procedural rules for
appeals from determinations of the Office of the State Fire Marshall
(OSFM) for Second Notice review by the Joint Committee on
Adminstrative Rules (JCAR). Under recent amendments to the
Environmental Protection Act, in P.A. 88-496, effective September
13, 1993 (
see issue 475, Oct. 6, 1993.
), the OSFM is charged with
making two new determinations in the course of remedial action
relating to leaking underground petroleum storage tanks. The
OSFM now makes the eligibility and deductibility determinations
formerly made by the Agency. The Board is charged with hearing
the owner or operator's appeals of those OSFM determinations.
Although the Board has always heard those appeals when the
determinations were made by the Agency, these are the first
appeals of OSFM determinations that the Board has ever heard.
The proposed rules set forth the information that a petitioner must
include in its petition for review. Among the proposed provisions
unique to OSFM appeals is the scheduling of hearings only in
Chicago and Springfield, unless the petitioner sets forth sufficient
reasons in its petition for holding it elsewhere. This will avoid the
parties travelling throughout the state. It will further allow scheduling
multiple hearings on a single day. Other rules relate to cancelling
hearings, staying the proceedings, and motions for summary
judgment. Other aspects of the proposed rules either codify existing
Board practices or reference existing segments of the procedural
rules.
The Board opened this docket on its own subsequent to the
passage of P.A. 88-496. On June 30, 1994, the Board proposed
the amendments for First Notice publication in the
Illinois Register
(see issue 484, July, 1994)
and conducted a public hearing in
Springfield on August 22.
The Board will be free to adopt regulations based on the
proposed rules when either the Second Notice period ends, 45 days
after JCAR received the Second Notice package, or upon receipt of
a Certificate of No Objection from JCAR. Direct questions to the
hearing officer, Deborah Frank, at 217-356-5275. Please refer to
docket R94-11.
WATER AMENDMENTS PROPOSED FOR FIRST NOTICE, R94-1
The Board proposed amendments to certain of the water quality
amendments for First Notice publication in the
Illinois Register
on
September 15, 1994. The proposed amendments would amend
certain of the water quality regulations by updating various
standards for ammonia nitrogen, lead, and mercury. The Board has
also scheduled two public hearings to occur in November in
Springfield and Chicago.
The Illinois EPA (Agency) proposal proceeded from a mandatory
review of the Illinois stream water quality regulations required under
the federal Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. §§ 1251
et seq.
). The
proposal would amend Parts 302 and 304 of the Water Pollution
Control regulations to revise the standards for ammonia nitrogen,
mercury, and lead general water quality standards; secondary
contact and indigenous aquatic life standards; and other
regulations. The Agency filed the proposal February 24, 1994. The
Board accepted the proposal on March 17, 1994 and decided to
proceed on the proposal as a federally required rule on May 5,
1994. (
Issues 481, April, 1994 & 483, June, 1994.
)
Section 28.2 of the Act allows the Agency to certify that certain
regulatory amendments are federally required rules. It allows the
Board 45 days to either accept or reject the Agency's certification.
Pursuant to the Board's order of May 5 construing Section 28.2, the
Board was to have proposed a First Notice rule for publication in the
Illinois Register

SITE-SPECIFIC WATER QUALITY RULE FOR FLUORIDE
APPLICABLE TO GENERAL MOTORS CORP. PROPOSED FOR
FIRST NOTICE, R93-13
The Board proposed a site-specific set of amendments to a water
quality regulation for fluoride for First Notice publication in the
Illinois
Register
on September 1, 1994. The proposed amendments would
affect the fluoride water quality standard that applies to an unnamed
tributary to the Vermilion River and a segment of the Vermilion River
for 0.9 stream miles downstream of the confluence to the Indiana
state line. It would increase the water quality standard from 5
milligrams per liter (mg/l) to 10 mg/l.

The proposed amendments to Section 302.322 of the water
pollution control regulations are based on a proposal filed June 23,
1993 by the General Motors Corporation. The Board conducted a
public hearing on the proposal on April 26, 1994. The amended
water quality standards would specifically increase the fluoride
limitation as caused by the wastewater discharges of General
Motors Corporation into the receiving stream. Direct questions to
Diane F. O'Neill, at 312-814-6062. Please refer to docket R93-13.

GOVERNOR SIGNS BILLS continued from page 1.
P.A. 88-602 (formerly SB 1296), signed and effective September 1, 1994 amended Section 22.2(j)(6)(E)(v)(VI) of the
Environmental Protection Act. The amendment changes a Phase I environmental audit requirement. It decreased the time
from 75 years to 50 years for which a property owner is responsible for researching the business records for the property to
determine whether there was a release or is a threatened release of hazardous substance or pesticide.
P.A. 88-621 (formerly HB 1332), signed September 9 and effective January 1, 1995, amended the exceptions to the Open
Meetings Act (5 ILCS 120). The statute now provides,
inter alia
, that a "quasi-adjudicative body" may meet in closed session
to consider "evidence or testimony . . ., provided that the body prepares and makes available for public inspection a written
decision setting forth its determinative reasoning." Under the new amendments, an agency must vote at an open meeting to
conduct a closed meeting, citing and publicly disclosing the specific exception authorizing the closed meeting. Further, instead
of a "general description of all matters proposed, discussed, or decided, and a record of any votes taken" at the closed meeting,
the amendments require a "summary of discussion on all matters proposed, deliberated, or decided, and a record of any votes
taken". Also, the amendments changed from 24 hours to 48 hours the advanced notice an agency must give of its meetings.
Finally, the amendments extended from 45 days to 60 days the time within which a complainant may file an action for
enforcement of the Open Meetings Act.
P.A. 88-633 (formerly HB 3192), signed September 9 and effective January 1, 1995, amended the prohibition against land
application of untreated grease trap sludge in Section 22.30 of the Environmental Protection Act. It now prohibits the
introduction of this material into any sewage treatment works or the collection system for any treatment works without the
express authorization of the owner or operator of the works. It also now prohibits the transportation of this material off-site
without accompanying specific documentation and requires shippers, transporters, and receiving entities to retain records of the
shipments for a minimum of two years after disposal of the material. The amendments authorize owners and operators of
sewage treatment works to establish a program for registration and licensing for collection and transportation of grease trap
sludge, and to charge a fee to recover the costs of any such program.
P.A. 88-668 (formerly SB 1721), signed and effective September 16, 1994, was an omnibus environmental bill. The bill
amended the Section 3.76 definition of "coal combustion waste" to include fly ash with 10 percent or less fuel grade petroleum

Environmental Register No. 487
Environmental Register No. 487
October, 1994/Page

coke, so that this material would be disposed of in the same way as other coal combustion waste. It amended Section 39.5 of
the Act to clarify that an owner or operator of a new air pollution source subject to the Clean Air Act Program (CAAP) must
submit a completed permit application within 1 year after commencing operations. The amendments to Section 39.5 further
clarify that an owner or operator of a source that first becomes subject to the CAAP due to a change in operations must submit
a permit application at least 180 days before commencing operations. The amendments of Section 39.5 also clarify that the fee
for a federally-enforceable state operating permit (FSOP) for an air pollution source that emits less than 25 tons per year of
regulated air pollutants is the same $100.00 fee as that in the CAAP for a source emitting less than 25 tons per year.
Formerly, the FSOP fee was $1,000.00. An amendment to Section 44(f) corrected a typographical error, changing "justifiable
risk" to "unjustifiable risk" in the definition of the crime of reckless disposal of hazardous waste. It removed the condition "or
may otherwise cause property damage" from the criteria that automatically place a leaking underground storage tank (LUST)
into the high priority risk classification for remedial action in Sections 57.7 and 57.8 of the Environmental Protection Act.
Finally, the bill added Section 5.386 to the State Finance Act (30 ILCS 105) to create the new Clean Air Act (CAA) Fund.
Although formerly referenced in other statutes two years ago when the General Assembly created the CAAP (but not to be
collected until some time in 1995), this amendment actually created the fund in the state treasury for the Comptroller's
management of the funds collected in administration of the CAAP.
