Background

The Ilada Energy Company site is a 17-acre abandoned tank farm southeast of East Cape Girardeau in Alexander County, Illinois. It formerly had a tank storage capacity of 12 million gallons. In the 1980s, the site was found to contain oil, sludge and contaminated water, some of which contained a variety of hazardous and toxic substances, including toxic heavy metals, industrial solvents and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Following cleanup, EPA took the site off the Superfund program’s National Priorities List (NPL) in January 2001.
