Legislation standing against waste near Mahomet Aquifer


Clinton – A push against storing chemical waste at a Clinton landfill is getting legislation behind it.


State Senator Chapin Rose and State Representative Bill Mitchell, are introducing bills to shield the Mahomet Aquifer from PCB damage posed by the Clinton Landfill. It would allow all Central Illinois County Boards, and municipalities sitting on the Aquifer to have the same veto authority as Dewitt County.


Thousands of people in Central Illinois depend on the Aquifer for drinking water.
