Health and Environmental Groups Announce Intent to Sue Illinois Coal Plant Owners for Violating Clean Air Act
Date:7/28/2009

s. EPA issued a notice of violation to Midwest Generation in August 2007 but has failed to take meaningful action to force clean ups at the plants and has allowed the plants to continue violating the law for the past two years.

Because of their age, Midwest Generation's coal plants are subject to more lenient opacity regulations than more modern plants. But Midwest's Generation's own reports document that all of the company's coal plants regularly violate even these relaxed opacity regulations. Installing modern pollution controls could greatly reduce particulate matter from these plants.

Comments from coalition members:

"C.A.R.E. has spent the last fourteen years fighting for the more stringent laws that are needed to protect citizens' health," stated Carol Stark, Director of Citizens Against Ruining the Environment - C.A.R.E. "After forty years of pollution from these dirty plants, it is time to say ENOUGH! Midwest Generation, do the right thing: correct the problem, or shut down!"

"For years, Midwest Generation has resisted installing pollution controls and violated federal laws in order to run these old, dirty plants as cheaply as possible," said Faith Bugel, Senior Attorney for the Environmental Law and Policy Center. "People living near these plants have to breathe polluted air because Midwest Generation wants to cut costs."

"These dirty coal plants are a threat to the public health and safety, as well as a liability to Illinois' clean energy future," said Henry Henderson, Director of the Midwest Program for NRDC. "Midwest Gen has not lived up to its obligation to the communities where their plants sit. It is well past time for them to cleanup or close for good."

"Even today, these ancient coal power plants continue to belch smoky black clouds in the heart of a major metropolis, putting millions of children, parents and grandparents at risk,"
