Annual Emissions Reports (AERs) Due May 1st

All facilities that have, or are required to have, a State of Illinois air pollution operating permit are required to file an Annual Emissions Report (AER) by May 1st each year.

These reports include data about the previous calendar year’s emissions for regulated pollutants.

IEPA emailed forms to each applicable facility in January, but did not physically mail any forms this year. Failure to receive the AER forms from IEPA does not relieve facilities of their obligation to file a timely report. If your facility did not yet receive your forms, contact buzz.asselmeier@illinois.gov.

IEPA has been cracking down on air violations, assessing over $1 million in penalties to companies throughout the state in 2017.  More than $300,000 of that total was assessed for air permitting violations.

If you need assistance completing your facility’s AER report, contact Gabriel’s Consulting Department at 773-486-2123 or water{at}gabenv.com.

Reminder: Air Reports Due May 1st

As a reminder, the Illinois Annual Air Emissions Report (AER) is due on May 1st each year for all facilities that have an air pollution operating permit. To learn more about the AER report, visit epa.state.il.us/air/aer/.IEPA-logo

The Title V/Clean Air Act Permit Program (CAAPP) Annual Compliance Certification is also due on May 1st for all eligible facilities.  For more information about the CAAPP program, visit epa.state.il.us/air/caapp/.

Illinois EPA has been cracking down on air violations in recent months, leading to enforcement action and penalties for several companies who have failed to obtain the proper CAAPP permits or file reports on time.  Our January/February Gabriel Gazette highlighted one Chicago area firm that was fined $50,000 for air violations including failure to obtain a CAAPP permit and failure to submit an AER.

If you need assistance in completing the Annual AER, CAAPP Annual Compliance Certification, or any CAAPP permit forms, contact our Water Department at WaterDept @gabenv.com.
