TAYLORVILLE — After printing time yesterday, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) got in contact with the Breeze-Courier. Kim Biggs, a Public Information Officer with the IEPA, provided the paper with the following statement:
“The Illinois EPA does not currently have a timetable for when the Kroger store will be able to re-open. Last week, the Illinois EPA approved a plan for a licensed asbestos project design consultant to enter the store and collect samples to determine the extent of any required clean-up actions. Kroger and the consultant are expected to use the information gathered during the evaluation to prepare a remediation plan for the State’s review and approval. The Illinois EPA is focused on ensuring the store is safe for customers, employees and others.”
