Kroger requires more time to complete its approved Asbestos Abatement and Remedial Action Design Plan to re-open the Taylorville location.
Office of Attorney General Kwame Raoul says the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency issued a modified Seal Order.
This modified seal order authorizes Kroger personnel to continue to work in the store to complete remediation tasks through November 22nd, 2022.
Towards the end of September, the Attorney General’s office announced an approved plan for work to re-open the Taylorville Kroger.
The store closed July 29th when the state Environmental Protection Agency received a report of asbestos outside of the containment area while an abatement company Kroger hired worked at the store.
