Following the release of the most recent report by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on air testing around the Willowbrook facility, Sterigenics, State Sen. John F. Curran (R-Downers Grove) released the following statement.
“Today’s EPA results regarding the air quality around Sterigenics demonstrate two things: that the air around this facility is not safe, and that the safeguards put in place by Sterigenics are failing to adequately address these critical issues. Therefore, I am reiterating my call that Sterigenics cease operations immediately. If they do not, then the State must step in and shut them down. The public health and welfare of our community is, and will remain, my number one priority.”
