Will County Health Department to begin preparations for new building

Author: Editor

Visitors of the Will County Health Department and Community Health Center will begin to notice some changes to the properties come December.

The first changes will be fencing placed along portions of the Neal Avenue parking lot between the two buildings, according to a news release. Parking changes are scheduled to go into effect on Dec. 12, although the south end of Ring Road, which goes around to the back of the campus, will be closed just past the Community Health Center.

Report: Coal-fired power plants have contaminated groundwater across Illinois, Will County

Author: Editor

Several coal-fired power plants in Illinois, including some in Will County, have contaminated groundwater with unsafe levels of toxic pollutants, according to a new report. 

The Environmental Integrity Project, Earthjustice, Prairie Rivers Network and the Sierra Club examined the data and found that about 90 percent (22 of 24) of the state’s reporting plants have contaminated groundwater with “unsafe levels of one or more toxic pollutants.”

According to the report, the state of Illinois began developing rules to protect against pollution from coal ash ponds in 2013, but the unfinished rules were abandoned, allowing pollution to continue. The plant owners disposed of millions of tons of toxic coal ash.
