Contamination Cleanup Fight Continues In DePue

Posted by wlpo on August 18, 2012

People wanting Lake DePue cleaned up of toxic waste are trying to push the issue online.

A new website about the ongoing contamination cleanup delay at the lake has popped up called “”.  One the site, you can catch up on the history of contamination at the lake caused by Exxon Mobil and Viacom.  You can also take a virtual tour of contaminated sites and sign a petition to get the contamination cleaned up.

Village President Eric Bryant said this week the latest cleanup proposals aren’t acceptable.  Bryant and the village have been waiting for something to be done since the 90s.
