Short description: 
ENVIRON-GROUNDWATER PROTECTION                                             

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends  the  Illinois  Groundwater   Protection   Act.    Defines      
   "non-transient,   non-community   water   system"   and   "substantial      
   compliance".   Provides  that  a  public  water  system  is  either  a      
   community   water   system  (CWS)  or  a  non-community  water  system      
   (non-CWS).  Provides that, as part of the permit application, all  new      
   non-transient, non-community water systems must demonstrate technical,      
   financial,  and  managerial  capacity consistent with the federal Safe      
   Drinking Water Act.  Effective immediately.                                 
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Deletes the definition of "substantial compliance".                    
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Public Health)                            
          SB 852 will have no fiscal impact on the Department of Public        
          Health, but will have a positive fiscal impact on Illinois EPA.      
          Failure to enact authority for all public water systems subject      
          to the federal Safe Drinking Water Act will force the USEPA to       
          initiate steps that will lead to the loss of federal funding to      
          the State for the Safe Drinking Water grant and could affect         
          Illinois' primacy status. Failure to enact system capacity           
          legislation will ultimately result in a loss of 20% of the           
          revolving loan funds each year. Based on current levels of           
          funding, the State's share of $35 million would be reduced by        
          10% or $3.5 million in FFY 2001; 15% or $4.7 million in FFY          
          2002; and 20% or $7 million in each additional year.
