FERC Holding Public Hearings Today on Taum Sauk

MARCH 12, 2007 - Posted at 11:28 a.m. CST

 

ST. LOUIS, MO - Federal regulators will hold two public hearings today on Ameren UE's plan to rebuild the Taum Sauk reservoir.

The Federal Emergency Regulatory Commission is holding one hearing this morning in Jefferson City and a second hearing tonight in Lesterville.

Members of the public can give their opinions on the plan.

The mountaintop reservoir collapsed in late 2005.  The resulting flood devastated the Johnson's Shut-Ins State Park and injured a family of five.

Ameren says it wants to rebuild the reservoir  with new safety features that would prevent another collapse.

Tonight's hearing at Lesterville will begin at 7 p.m. at the city's public school.
