Start Preamble

Under 28 CFR 50.7, notice is hereby given that on February 11, 2002, a proposed Addendum to the Consent Decree which will modify a settlement previously entered by the Court on March 19, 2001 in United States and People of the State of Illinois v. Archer Daniels Midland Company (CD Illinois), (Civil No. 00-2338), was lodged with the United States District Court for the Central District of Illinois. The Consent Decree resolved claims on behalf of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EDPA”) and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (“IEPA”) against the Archer Dainels Midland Company (“ADM”). The Complaint, which was filed simultaneously with the lodging of the Decree, alleged violations of the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (“PSD”) requirements of Part C of the Clean Air Act (the “CAA”), 42 U.S.C. 7470-7492, and the regulations promulgated thereunder at 40 CFR 52.21 (the “PSD Rules”) at the Decatur Illinois plant.

Under the Addendum to the Consent Decree, ADM will install further controls on feed dryers #5 and #6 for more complete reduction of PM and will implement new technology for the control of volatile organic compound (“VOC”) emissions from these units by no later than September 30, 2003. The Addendum also establishes interm limits to ensure that PM emissions are minimized pending the installation of the additional controls. The State of Illinois is joining with the United States in this action as a signatory to the Addendum.
