More Bans for Clinton Landfill Dumping

Thursday, Governor Quinn announced a halt to the disposal of manufactured glass plant or MGP at the landfill.

This comes after a ban was put on the disposal of PCBs earlier this week.

MGPs used to be disposed in the chemical waste unit of Clinton Landfil, but yesterday's action would keep them out entirely.

Quinn says, the goal is to keep the water in the Mahomet Aquifer, safe for the 800-thousand Illinois residents who rely on it for drinking water.
