Profile:

  • The Illinois Drycleaner Environmental Response Trust Fund was established by the Illinois legislature in 1997 to clean up soil and groundwater contamination caused by dry-cleaning solvents. A 7-member council oversees the fund. The council contracted with Williams & Company Consulting, Inc. as the third party administrator.

    The fund consists of three primary programs: a licensing program, an insurance program, and a remedial program. The services include receiving and processing license applications, receiving and processing applications for insurance coverage, receiving and processing claims, and other accounting and record keeping services. The licensing program is mandatory for all retail dry-cleaning facilities in Illinois.

    The insurance program provides up to $500,000 in pollution liability insurance to pay for the cleanup of soil and groundwater contamination caused by a future spill or leak of dry-cleaning solvent at the insured’s facilities. A $10,000 deductible applies to each incident. The remedial program pays for the cleanup of existing soil or groundwater contamination at active and inactive facilities caused by the spillage or release of dry-cleaning solvents. This covers contamination discovered after July 1, 1997, and prior to June 30, 2004. Maximum cleanup benefits are $160,000 for active sites and $50,000 for inactive sites. Various deductibles apply to the remedial program.

    The Fund Council currently contracts with a private company, Williams & Company Consulting, Inc., to provide third party administration services. These services include receiving and processing license applications, receiving and processing applications for insurance coverage, receiving and processing claims and other accounting and record keeping services..
