Illinois Pollution Control Board Continues Environmental Rulemaking & Decisions
Published Date: February 27, 2016
Yesterday, the Illinois Pollution Control Board published its January 2016 Environmental Register, which summarizes the Board’s actions with regard to rulemaking and decisions in environmental lawsuits. The Board remains very active on the regulatory front regarding water pollution, especially concerning the public water supply and surface water discharges. The Environmental Register also trumpets the Second District Court of Appeals’ ruling that affirmed the Board’s administrative citation against a business for open dumping of litter and general construction or demolition debris. It appears that the Board remains a hardworking group of professionals in a very tough political climate.
