Ameren delays construction of coal ash landfill

Tuesday, 05 November 2013 16:29 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Ameren Missouri says it is delaying the planned construction of a coal ash landfill in Franklin County.

The St. Louis-based utility wants to build the landfill next to its Labadie power plant.  Environmental groups have fought the landfill because of its proximity to the Missouri River flood plain.

The Washington Missourian reports that the Missouri Public Service Commission has canceled project hearings scheduled for November so that Ameren can file a revised construction permit application with the state Department of Natural Resources.

Franklin County has asked the utility to include six additional groundwater monitoring wells at the landfill, despite DNR assurances that Ameren's groundwater monitoring plan is adequate.

 

More information about an accident in North St. Louis County.

Three kids, aged 5, 17, and 18, were walking home from school, when the driver of an SUV hit three. Police say the driver tried to flee the scene, but flipped the SUV and ran into a home. The driver is in police custody.

The three victims were all taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois House has approved legislation allowing same-sex couples to marry in the state.

The vote 61-54 vote sends the measure back to the Senate for minor changes to a version it approved on Valentine's Day. Gov. Pat Quinn says he'll sign it.

Fourteen states plus Washington D.C., allow same-sex marriage. Most recently, New Jersey, Minnesota and Rhode Island have allowed it.

The historic vote in Illinois came after months of arduous lobbying by gay-rights advocates, but the bill was never called for a House vote earlier this year because the sponsor said there weren't enough votes. Proponents say momentum had been building, especially as the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Opponents say marriage should remain between a man and woman.
