NOW, THEREFORE, the conditions of this obligation are such that if the Principal shall faithfully perform reclamation, whenever required to do so, of each facility for which this bond guarantees funds for reclamation, to the satisfaction of the Director, Illinois Emergency Management Agency, in accordance with acceptable practices for protection of health and safety pursuant to all applicable laws, statutes, rules and regulations, as such laws, statutes, rules and regulations may be amended;

OR, if the Principal shall provide alternative financial assurance as specified in 32 Ill. Adm. Code 326.170, and obtain the written approval of such assurance from the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, within 90 days after the date notice of cancellation is received by both the Principal and the Agency from the Surety(ies), then this obligation shall be null and void; otherwise, it is to remain in full force and effect.

The Surety(ies) shall become liable on this bond obligation only when the Principal has failed to fulfill the conditions described herein.

Upon notification by the Agency that the Principal has been found in violation of the reclamation requirements of the Agency, for a facility for which this bond guarantees funds for performance of reclamation, the Surety(ies) shall pay the reclamation cost amount guaranteed for the facility to the Agency as directed by the Director.

Upon notification by the Agency that the Principal has failed to provide alternative financial assurance as specified in 32 Ill. Adm.

The Surety(ies) hereby waive(s) notification of amendments to licenses, applicable laws, statutes, rules and regulations and agree(s) that no such amendment shall in any way alleviate its (their) obligation on this bond.

The liability of the Surety(ies) shall not be discharged by any payment or succession of payments hereunder, unless and until such payment or payments shall amount in the aggregate to the penal sum of the bond, but in no event shall the obligation of the Surety(ies) hereunder exceed the amount of said penal sum.

The Surety(ies) may cancel the bond by sending notice of cancellation by certified mail to the licensee and to the Agency; provided, however, that cancellation shall not occur during the 180 days beginning on the date of receipt of the notice of cancellation by both the Principal and the Agency, as evidenced by the return receipts.

The Principal may terminate this bond by sending written notice to the Surety(ies); provided, however, that no such notice shall become effective until the Surety(ies) receive(s) written authorization for termination of the bond by the Agency.
