Cleaning up the neighborhood
DEPUE — As the fight continues to clean-up DePue’s Superfund Site, the Citizens Advisory Group (CAG) is close to completing a work plan with Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to test and remediate contamination in DePue’s residential properties.
“We just think it’s crazy where we live and our kids play still hasn’t been cleaned up,” DePue Village President Eric Bryant said.
At Monday’s village board meeting, Bryant explained parts of the work plan to board members and said the village will have to first get approval from all property owners to perform the testing for contamination. The properties that test positive will undergo a contamination remediation process at the expense of the responsible parties, which include Viacom International Incorporated/CBS and ExxonMobil Corporation.
