Clean Air Act Title V

The campus operates external air emission sources in accordance with a federally enforceable operating permit issued by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA). The university is required to have this permit because it is a major source of criteria pollutants: carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, particulates, lead, nitrogen oxides and ozone. The permit contains numerous monitoring, record-keeping, and reporting requirements that must be performed in order to demonstrate compliance with air emission limits.
