Environment

One of the issues, I have been pushing for in Springfield is legislation to better monitor ground water in Will County. Residents in Will County have little assurance their ground water has not been contaminated by certain defunct quarries located in the County and now being filled with construction debris.

Residents are told by the industry that the water is safe, but that simply is not good enough.  Over 100 citations for improper disposal and/or recordkeeping were issued by the Illinois EPA to quarries throughout the State. We need better oversight and I will continue pushing legislation to get the oversight Will County residents deserve.
