A Big Blow To a Big Polluter

This week the federal Environmental Appeals Board dealt a major setback to proposal by Indeck for a new dirty coal plant south of Joliet, right next to the Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie.

This is a huge victory for those who have fought against all odds against the Indeck proposal. The proposal is not dead, but serious questions have been raised. Congratulations to Bruce Nilles, Verena Owen, Becki Clayborne, Jerry Heinrich, and everyone else who has been working to stop the plant.

More details are available here and here.
