EPA Meets With Businesses Linked To Wedron Case

Mar 20, 2013

EPA officials are talking to businesses suspected of being the responsible for contaminated groundwater in a LaSalle County community. A meeting was held this week to discuss some of the initial findings from a U.S. EPA investigation. Officials have found high levels of benzene in a number of private wells in the town of Wedron.

Concerns are growing over contaminated groundwater in a small northern Illinois community. Residents in Wedron report a strong gas odor coming from their spigots. Frustrated over the government’s response, they’ve asked a famed activist to help get some answers.
