Veolia Sauget Site-Specific Risk Assessment

At the request of the Illinois Attorney General and the Illinois EPA, U.S. EPA has updated its 2007 site-specific risk assessment for the Veolia facility in Sauget, Illinois. U.S. EPA’s report analyzes potential emissions from the three hazardous waste incinerators that Veolia ES Technical Services, L.L.C. owns and operates in Sauget. The incinerators are regulated under Illinois EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) permit and U.S. EPA’s 2019 Clean Air Act Title V permit.

The risk assessment demonstrates that compliance with current feed-rate limits in the federal Title V permit should be protective of public health in the area near the facility. U.S. EPA also recommends that Illinois EPA consider including emission limits for mercury and chromium in its RCRA permit.
