Talks continue tonight in DePue about contamination cleanup

Posted by wlpo on June 29, 2016

You’ll have a chance to speak up about the soil cleanup efforts in DePue during a public meeting this evening.

Members of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency will be on-hand to take your feedback, as well as give a formal presentation on the proposed cleanup plan. This part of the overall effort to clean up contaminated soil left by New Jersey Zinc and, later, Exxon and CBS, would involve testing soil in DePue yards and replacing entire portions of a yard that is found to be contaminated.

If you want to see the proposal for yourself, you can do that by heading to the DePue Gymnasium tonight from 6:00 to 8:00.
