The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced an extension of the public comment period for a proposed PCB disposal cell at the Clinton Landfill in Clinton, Illinois, until August 14th. The public comment period had originally been scheduled to close on June 15th. According to a story in the Chicago Tribune, “Residents have opposed the plan because the disposal area is above an underground aquifer that provides drinking water to several cities.”
