This is No Circus Tent !!

have you seen the large white tent that has been erected along Martin Luther King Drive between Main and Wood Streets?


No, it's not a circus that's come to town.

Ameren (formerly Illinois Power) has started an 18 month project to clean-up contamination from the former coal gasification plant that was located on this site dating all the way back to 1865.
