The transition period for the Remediation Closure Guide (RCG) and Remediation Program Guide (RPG) ends six months from its effective date. The effective date of the RCG is March 22, 2012, therefore the transition period will end this Saturday, September 22, 2012.

For the Leaking Underground Storage Tank Program, a party(s) may choose to use either previously applicable guidance or the new guidance if a Corrective Action Plan (CAP) has been submitted to IDEM prior to September 22, 2012.

If the CAP has not been submitted before the end of the transition period, then IDEM will refer to current guidance and applicable rules and laws when evaluating proposed remediation work plans and remediation objectives.

For additional information please refer to Section 1.4 of the Remediation Program Guide.
