Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process.
Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public
soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the
Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes,
statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect.
If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has
not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already
been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes
made to the current law.
(225 ILCS 225/10)
(from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 116.310)
(a) This Act does not prohibit the enforcement of ordinances of units of
local government establishing a system for the regulation and inspection of
private sewage disposal contractors and a minimum code of standards for
design, construction, materials, operation and maintenance of private
sewage disposal systems, for the transportation and disposal of wastes
therefrom and for private sewage disposal systems servicing equipment,
provided such ordinance establishes a system at least equal to state
regulation and inspection.
Such units of local government who wish to be approved, shall submit a
copy of such ordinance including all amendments to the Department
requesting approval for such system of regulation and inspection. If such
plan is approved by the Department the ordinance shall prevail in lieu of
the state licensure, fee and inspection program, and the Department shall
issue written approval. Not less than once each year the Department shall
evaluate the program to determine whether such program is being operated in
accordance with the approved provisions of existing ordinances. If the
Department finds after investigation that such program is not in accordance
with the approved program or is not being enforced, the Director shall give
written notice of the findings to the chief administrative officer of such
unit of local government. If the Department thereafter finds, not less than
30 days after the giving of such notice that the program is not being
conducted in a manner consistent with existing ordinances, the Director
shall give written notice of such findings to the chief administrative
officer of the unit of local government, and after administrative hearing
as provided in this Act, all persons then operating under such unit of
local government shall be immediately subject to the state licensure, fee
and inspection program.
(b) This Act does not prohibit the enforcement of ordinances of units of local government that require homeowners who maintain a private sewage disposal system within the unit of local government to provide verification, no more frequently than once every 3 years, to the unit of local government of a valid contract with a licensed private sewage disposal system installation contractor. However, no additional fee may be charged for such verification.
