Violations found during inspections or through compliant investigations are managed in several ways:
Cook County Department of Environmental Control provides annual compliance inspections of stationary sources of air pollution. The Department conducts approximately 1,600 industrial and 10,000 commercial (area sources) site inspections. The industrial inspections range from small single source sites to large multi-process major source facilities. Commercial site inspections include dry cleaners, incinerators, storage tanks with stage-stage-II and I controls at gasoline dispensing facilities and fuel combustion units. Inspectors within the department also respond to citizen complaints.
