USEPA won’t proceed with PCB permit application

The US Environmental Protection Agency said it will not proceed with a determination on the Clinton Landfill PCB permit application, according to the Champaign News-Gazette. They cite the recent permit modification by the IEPA that denies acceptance of PCB cleanups at the landfill as the reason. The USEPA website has updated its technical documents list with items from the Illinois EPA and the DeWitt County Board supporting this.
