Cleaning up DePue
DEPUE – Many concerns about the future testing of contamination on DePue residential properties were addressed during the Citizens Advisory Group (CAG) meeting held Wednesday night with representatives from Illinois Environmental Protection Agency.
Village President Eric Bryant recently informed the village board of the future testing. He explained when the time comes, an owner will first have to give permission to do any testing their property. If the tests read positive for contamination, remediation of the contaminated soils on the property will take place. He confirmed the process will include removing the contaminated soils and restoring the property grounds.
Each property owner that gives permission to testing will receive a certificate stating that property was cleaned of contamination or tested negative for any contamination. On Wednesday, IEPA Project Manager Charlene Falco helped residents visualize how the process will take place, and he reassured community members that IEPA will host informational sessions, which will give a breakdown of how the cleanup in residential properties will take place.
