Comparison: State vs. Federals
• Rules. Illinois's requirements concerning security for air toxics are covered in the state's accidental release prevention program, which follows the federal program. See the national sections RISK MANAGEMENT and SECURITY for more information.
Illinois's rules for the security of hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs) follow the federal requirements in connection with facility security during the life of the TSDF and during a disposal facility's post-closure care period. Illinois also follows the federal rules for storage of hazardous waste munitions and explosives. Similar to the federal rules for municipal solid waste landfills (MSWLFs), the owners and operators of such facilities must avoid unauthorized access with specific state requirements in connection with signage at the facility's entrance. Access to sites where waste tires are accumulated must be controlled by secure means. The rules for the storage of solid waste military munitions are the same as the federal rules.
Illinois follows the federal rules for vulnerability assessment requirements for public water suppliers. See the national section SECURITY for more information. In addition, Illinois has security requirements for wastewater treatment facilities, which include provisions for chlorine disinfection and pumping stations.
