(415 ILCS 5/17.4)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 1017.4)
(a) In promulgating a regulation to establish the boundary
for a regulated recharge area, the Board shall, in addition to the factors
set forth in Title VII of this Act, consider the following:
(1) the adequacy of protection afforded to potable resource groundwater by any
applicable setback zones;
(2) applicability of the standards and requirements
promulgated pursuant to Section 14.4;
(3) refinements in the groundwater quality standards which may be
appropriate for the delineated area;
(4) the extent to which the delineated area may serve as a sole source
of supply for public water supplies.
(b) The Board may only promulgate a regulation which establishes the
boundary for a regulated recharge area if the Board makes a determination
that the boundary of the delineated area is drawn so that the natural
geological or geographic features contained therein are shown to be highly
susceptible to contamination over a predominant portion of the recharge area.
(c) Nothing in this Section shall be construed as limiting the general
authority of the Board to promulgate regulations pursuant to Title VII of this Act.
