AmerenUE Reveals Plan to Stabilize Taum Sauk Reservoir

MARCH 21, 2006 - Posted at 5:17 p.m. CST

 

ST. LOUIS, MO - AmerenUE announces a plan to stablize the upper reservoir of its Taum Sauk hydroelectric plant by the summer.

The plan requires a permit from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.  It would allow AmerenUE to stablize the damaged area of the plant so that Federal Energy Regulatory Commission officials and others can safely continue their investigation.

The repair is not meant as a permanent fix.  The St. Louis-based utility has not decided whether it will seek to rebuild Taum Sauk.

The reservoir failed on December 14, causing a rupture that spilled more than one billion gallons of water.  The torrent of water rushed through Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park, injuring the park superintendent, his wife and their three children.  All five survived.
