I feel bad for the people that live in the shadow of the Braidwood power station. I was at a public hearing in April of 2005 that was hosted by the IEPA, tritium was discussed at that hearing evidence was entered into the minutes of the hearing showing tritium in the wells. There was a whole panel of people from IEPA present they knew of this almost a year ago...and did nothing....the people don't stand a chance against Excelon. Who is going to go to bat for the people if the IEPA looks the other way on a matter this serious? Isn't this their job? Someone needs to take Excelon to task on this and other spills that have been documented. Although for the last 20 years no one has taken them to task...hmmmm must be all those lobbyists they have in their back pocket.
