Abstract:Public Acts 87-1267 and 88-458, which amended the Illinois Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Act, were signed into law by Governor Jim Edgar on March 3, 1993, and August 20, 1993, respectively. These Acts created a Low-Level Radioactive Waste Task Group charged with developing "proposed criteria for selection of a site for a facility for the disposal of low-level radioactive waste away from the point of generation." The Illinois State Geological Survey (ISGS) and Illinois State Water Survey (ISWS), Divisions of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, were named in the Act as the parties responsible for screening the state to "identify at least ten locations, each of at least 640 acres, that appear likely to meet the criteria" adopted by the Task Group. The Scientific Surveys were also charged with evaluating "any location of at least 640 acres that is volunteered by a landowner or unit of local government to determine whether the volunteered location appears likely to meet the criteria." Volunteer sites were to be in addition to the ten or more locations identified by the Scientific Surveys.
