Judge: It's Time for Peoria Coal Plan to Clean It Up

www.lungchicago.org
A federal judge sided with a coalition of environmental and health groups that filed a lawsuit against Peoria's E.D. Edwards coal plant alleging that the company is "emitting an excessive amount of soot pollution."

"Old plants like Edwards need to install modern pollution control equipment, but Dynegy has failed to do so, while taking a 'duct tape and bubble gum' approach to maintenance," said Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) attorney Ann Alexander. "The company may have saved itself money, but Peoria citizens paid the price in dirty air. We're glad the court recognized that this has gone on long enough."
