Gas plant cleanup

MENDOTA - Heavy machinery has been moved in as the cleanup continues of what was an old gas plant located at the southeast corner of Ninth Avenue and Fifth Street in Mendota. Nicor Gas and ComEd are partnering to clean up the area under the oversight of the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. Cleanup of the property began in November 2019 and the targeted conclusion is the fall of 2021. A majority of the work will be done in the parking lot, with some work planned in the adjacent creek. More detailed information about the project can be obtained online at or by contacting Bernie Anderson of Nicor Gas at [email protected] or by calling (309) 261-4155. (Reporter photo)
