Comparison: State vs. Federal

Rules. Applicable sources in Illinois must follow the federal new source performance standards and the national emission standards for hazardous air pollutants, which contain source-specific standards for the control of fugitive emissions. In addition, IEPA has developed its own regulations for the control of fugitive particulate matter and volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, as well as visible emissions and odor. IEPA has established standards based on the location of the fugitive emissions sources and the attainment status of the area where the sources are located.

Administration and enforcement. IEPA's Division of Air Pollution Control is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the state's fugitive emissions regulations. IEPA's Division of Land Pollution Control oversees the regulation of hazardous waste storage, treatment, and disposal facilities.
