Except as provided in subsections (c) and (d) of this Section, if the Agency fails to notify the owner or operator of its final action on a plan, budget, or report within 120 days after the receipt of a plan, budget, or report, the owner or operator may deem the plan, budget, or report rejected by operation of law. If the Agency rejects a plan, budget, or report or requires modifications, the written notification must contain the following information, as applicable:
1) An explanation of the specific type of information, if any, that the Agency needs to complete its review;
2) An explanation of the Sections of the Act or regulations that may be violated if the plan, budget, or report is approved; and
