Clinton – The
State Attorney General is throwing her support behind a push against storing
chemical waste at a Clinton Landfill.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan's office
announced a plan to send PCB chemical waste storage back to the Dewitt County
Board for a vote. Madigan's Office received several requests from cities such
as Decatur, Bloomington,
City leaders plan to fight the Clinton
Landfill owners, because there are concerns that PCB's from the landfill could
contaminate the Aquifer which sits below it. They say it is potential threat to
the drinking water.
The Aquifer supplies about 750 thousand
people with water.
