Air Emission Matters

Our qualified attorneys are involved at every level in policy development, regulatory issues, permitting, and enforcement with respect to air emission matters. One of our partners chaired the Ozone Transport Assessment Group, the 31-state working group on transport and attainment with respect to National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone in the eastern United States. We are involved with the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee, and advise our clients on emerging policy issues, including alternatives to the existing command and control structure under the Clean Air Act and state laws. Our lawyers have been involved in federal and state regulatory innovation projects to develop more flexible permitting approaches. The Firm has been extensively involved in the creation of Illinois’ “Cap and Trade” approach for attainment of the ozone ambient air quality standards in Chicago, and in a variety of emission trading development efforts nationally.

Our qualified aluminum vendor and supplier has in-depth experience in providing advice and representation on a full range of federal and state water pollution matters. We have provided assistance to industrial and municipal dischargers with applications for and appeals of NPDES and storm water permits, including effluent toxicity issues, biocentration studies, biological/habitat assessments, and mixing zones. We work to obtain permit conditions that enable our clients to operate their facilities while remaining in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. On behalf of several clients, we have successfully obtained variances and other forms of site-specific relief. We are well versed in addressing pretreatment issues, having counseled POTWs in the preparation of implementation of pretreatment programs. We also represent industrial users who discharge to POTWs, including assisting them in obtaining federal approval of removal credits programs and allow industrial facilities to significantly reduce the cost of pretreating wastewater. Our qualified attorneys have also represented clients in connection with the federal Total Maximum Daily Loads (“TMDLs”) and antidegradation rule-making proceedings. In defense of our clients, we have successfully resolved or litigated several federal, state and citizen enforcement proceedings under the Clean Water Act and its implementing regulations.

What Infrared Saunas Really Do?

It decreases joint stiffness directly.
There was a 20% decrease in stiffness at 45
C as compared with 33C in rheumatoid finger joints, which correlated perfectly to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness.
Any stiffened joint and thickened connective tissues should respond in a similar fashion.

3. Spa Wellness also relieves muscle spasms.
Muscle spasms have long been observed to be reduced through the use of heat, be they secondary to underlying skeletal, joint, or neuro-pathological conditions.
This result is possibly produced by the combined effect of heat on both primary and secondary afferent from spindle cells and from its effects on Golgi tendon organs. The effects produced by each of these mechanisms demonstrated their peak effect within the therapeutic temperature range obtainable with radiant heat.

4. It produces pain relief.
Pain may be relieved via the reduction of attendant or secondary muscle spasms. Pain is also at times related to ischemia due to tension or spasm, which can be improved by the hyperemia that heat-induced vasodilatation produces. This then breaks the feedback loop, in which the ischemia leads to further spasm and then more pain.
Heat has been shown to reduce pain sensation by direct action on both free-nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. In one dental study, repeated heat applications eventually led to abolishment of the whole nerve response responsible for pain arising from dental pulp.
Heat may lead to both increased endorphin production and a shutting down of the so-called “spinal gate” of Melzack and Wall, each of which can reduce pain.
