Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

The owner and operator of a hazardous waste disposal site shall, without limitation, be responsible for the site for a period of 20 years after closure of the site, or such longer period of time as required by the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976, P.L. 94-580, or regulations issued thereunder, or by Board regulation adopted pursuant to subsection 22(a) or (f) of this Act. The owner and operator shall monitor such site for gas migration, drainage problems, erosion, settling, ground and surface water pollution and other environmental and safety problems which occur, and shall take whatever remedial action is necessary to solve any such problems which occur at the site during the period of responsibility.
