The pollution control board will hold additional public hearings to determine a remedy for the violations.
Illinois environmental groups say they will press for strict measures to deal with coal ash contamination at four NRG power plants after state regulators ruled last week that the company is to blame for groundwater pollution at the sites.
The June 20 ruling by the Illinois Pollution Control Board was a major development in the 7-year-old case but not the final word. The board will hold public hearings to determine the remedy for the violations it found.
