Background

The LaSalle Electrical Utilities site is located in the city of LaSalle, in LaSalle County, Illinois. From about 1943 until 1982, a 68,000-square-foot industrial complex on site made capacitors for use in industrial applications and electrical power transmission. Plant operations contaminated soil and groundwater with polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and chlorinated solvents. The site’s long-term remedy is now in place. Groundwater monitoring is ongoing.
