Illinois Environmental Protection Agency
Public Notice Proposed Renewal of the Clean Air Act Permit Program Permit
Morris Community Landfill in Morris
Morris Community Landfill has requested that the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) renew the Clean Air Act Permit Program (CAAPP) permit regulating air emissions from its Municipal Solid Waste Landfill located 1501 Ashley Road in Morris. Based on its review of the application, the Illinois EPA has made a preliminary determination that the application meets the standards for issuance and has prepared a draft permit for public review.
The Illinois EPA is accepting comments on the draft permit. Comments must be postmarked by midnight November 26, 2016. If sufficient interest is expressed in the draft permit, a hearing or other informational meeting may be held. Requests for information, comments, and questions should be directed to Brad Frost, Office of Community Relations, Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, 1021 N. Grand Ave. East PO. Box 19506, Springfield, Illinois 62794-9506, phone 217/782-7027, TDD phone number 217/782-9143, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The repositories for the draft permit documents are at the Illinois EPA’s offices at 9511 West Harrison in Des Plaines, 847/294-4000 and 1021 North Grand Avenue East, Springfield, 217/782-7027 (please call ahead to assure that someone will be available to assist you). Copies of the draft permit and project summary may also be available at http://www.epa.gov/caa-permitting/region-5-electronic-permits. Copies of the documents will be made available upon request.
The CAAPP is Illinois’ operating permit program for major sources of emissions, as required by Title V of the Clean Air Act (Act). The conditions of CAAPP permits are enforceable by the public, as well as by the USEPA and Illinois EPA. In addition to implementing Title V of the Act, CAAPP permits may contain “Title I Conditions,” i.e., conditions established under the permit programs for new and modified emission units, pursuant to Title I of the Act. The permit contains T1 conditions in section 4.1.4 that were established in previously issued permits. The permit contains no T1 conditions that are being newly established or revised by this application.
The beginning of this public comment period also serves as the beginning date of the USEPA 45 day review period, provided the USEPA does not seek a separate proposed period.
