Formosa Plastics Plant Cleanup Nearly Complete Almost a Decade Later


Nearly 10 years after a devastating and deadly explosion at the site, the cleanup of the old Formosa Plastics plant in Illiopolis is nearly complete.

 

The State Journal-Register reports the last couple of buildings will be removed and a final soil cleanup should be concluded by this summer.

 

But it’s still unclear what will become of the property that had housed the biggest employer in Illiopolis.

 

Four people died in that blast in April of 2004… a fifth later died of injuries related to the explosion.
