After the promulgation of the Clean Construction or Demolition Debris (CCDD) rulemaking on August 24, 2006 (modified on August 27, 2012) by the Illinois Pollution Control Board, CCDD facilities began operations all across the state. However, to date, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA), has yet to establish a good database of these facilities. The database provided by the IEPA is out of date, has minimal information and is clunky and difficult to use. Thus, A3 Environmental Consultants created its own ArcGIS map of CCDD facilities.
The purpose of the A3E CCDD GIS map is to provide the most up to date information about each CCDD facility so that others in the industry, also struggling to get this information, can find it with a click of a button. Accurate information is paramount in our industry. Many CCDD facilities close without notice, or change their entrance locations and typically do not advertise their existence so a simple Google search would have zero results. Further, once the facility is found or located, finding a phone number or contact person, or even hours of operation is even more difficult.
The A3E CCDD GIS Map includes all the information in one spot. On the map is their location (both longitude/latitude and street address if available), hours of operation, site contact, phone number or email address, their IEPA Number and so much more. Additional information provided in the A3E CCDD GIS map includes overlays of the IEPA Maximum Allowable Concentrations (MAC) for each county. With the click of a mouse it can be determined if a project site is located in or outside a Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), a Populated Area, or within the City of Chicago Corporate Limits and instantly know what MAC tables apply.
Lastly, typing in the address of a project site will provide the pertinent information previously mentioned plus the designated truck routes in the area. But, if there is not a CCDD facility close to the project area, the GIS Map also provides information on nearby Subtitle D facilities.
A3E created this map to alleviate pain points with finding CCDD facilities and we want to share this information, free of charge, with organizations such as the IAAP, AWMA, and APWA as well as all our fellow friends in the consulting world.
A3E encourages you to reach out to us if you have any updated information on a CCDD facility or any suggestions for improvement.
