(d)  The licensee shall be subject to the provisions of the Act now or hereafter in effect, and to all rules and orders of the agency.

(e)  Any license may be revoked, suspended or modified in whole or in part for any material false statement in the application or any misstatement of fact required under the Act, or because of conditions revealed by any application or statement of fact or any report, record, or inspection or other means which would warrant the agency to refuse to grant a license on the original application, or for failure to operate the facility in accordance with the terms of the license, or for any violation of, or failure to observe any of the terms and conditions of the Act, or any rule, license or order of the agency.

(1)           protect the health and safety of the public and the environment, or minimize danger to life or property; and
