Groundwater Ordinance Status

Search Groundwater Ordinance Status Chart

The Groundwater Ordinance Status Chart is an informal listing of the groundwater ordinances reviewed for suitability as environmental institutional controls under 35 Ill. Adm. Code 742.1015.

The ordinances have been submitted to the Illinois EPA Bureau of Land as components of corrective action plans and reviewed by the Division of Legal Counsel. The status chart indicates whether each ordinance submitted has been approved, rejected, or approved subject to conditions.

The list is intended to be used for informational purposes only. The status of any ordinance shown on this chart is subject to change based on new information. All persons wishing to use an ordinance as an environmental institutional control must submit a newly certified copy of the ordinance along with the corrective action plan whether or not the ordinance previously has been approved. The only exception is where the local unit of government has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Illinois EPA under Section 742.1015(i). Questions about the status chart or the use of ordinances as institutional controls may be directed to the Division of Legal Counsel at (217) 782-5544.
