There will be an informational meeting for an update on the status of the Ameren Taylorville MGP Site at 917 South Webster Street in Taylorville. The meeting will take place at the Taylorville Junior High School this evening at 6 PM at 120 East Bidwell Street. If you haven’t already done so, you need to contact Sarah Brubaker, Office of Community Relations Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, to reserve an opportunity to speak. You can reach her at 217-786-0790 or at email@example.com.
During the meeting, you will learn about the site history, current nature and extent of residual impact, remedial technologies considered for a change of the remediation approach, and an update on the site status.
The Illinois EPA along with Ameren are both expected to be at the meeting to address community questions and concerns. A group called My Community My Family will be speaking and asking questions concerning August air monitoring reports, an open pit near the construction, no trespassing signs, and that the community should be involved with the decision-making for the site.
Stay tuned to Regional Radio News following the meeting for a recap of the event if you are unable to attend.
