Ameren Testing to see if Cleanup is Needed at Former Peru Plant

Posted by wlpo on November 24, 2015

Will an old manufactured gas plant in Peru need a cleanup? That’s what Ameren Illinois and the Illinois EPA hope to find out starting next week.

The electric and gas delivery company will be taking samples in the valley between the old Westclox factory and the City of LaSalle beginning December 1st. Analysis will take several weeks.

Similar tests were done before the LaSalle cleanup was launched in 2013. Ameren Illinois expects the first phase of THAT cleanup will be finished in early 2016.
