This week, USEPA Region 5 sent a 10-page letter to Lake County Board explaining the health risks from EtO data gathered from LCHD in 2019 & 2020 testing phases. (https://bit.ly/3Dal2Dd) They summarized the initial health risks from Medline & Vantage from the data collected from LCHD in Fall/Winter 2019 (pre-installation of emission controls).

ILLINOIS LEGISLATIVE LOOPHOLES FOR ETO LAWS SB1852 & SB1854

In Spring 2019, Illinois passed EtO laws that were touted as some of the “toughest in the nation”. In actuality, these laws are filled with egregious loopholes that allow polluters to legally pollute. What we know now (via the OIG report) is that these laws were passed in a vacuum, for not only was LakeContinue reading “ILLINOIS LEGISLATIVE LOOPHOLES FOR ETO LAWS SB1852 & SB1854”

Stop EtO: A Recap and Update

2020: Ethylene Oxide in Lake County – Where Are We? A Recap Itโ€™s been two years since Lake County residents learned about the cancer-causing ethylene oxide (EtO) air pollution Vantage Chemicals and Medline spew in Lake County (via a newspaper article and not our local government) and our problem is far from fixed.  What followsContinue reading “Stop EtO: A Recap and Update”

EtO Emissions and Warehouses โ€“ Why It Matters to Libertyville, Mundelein, Waukegan, and Grayslake Residents

Since harmful EtO can be passed on to patients and medical staff during treatments, the CDC requires EtO sterilized medical equipment be off-gassed to remove all residual traces. In fact, EtO is so toxic, the Illinois State Medical Society and those scientists not controlled by the chemical industry recommend EtO be used only on equipmentContinue reading “EtO Emissions and Warehouses โ€“ Why It Matters to Libertyville, Mundelein, Waukegan, and Grayslake Residents”

Lake County EtO Emissions STILL at Cancerous Levels

Despite polluting companies and the Lake County Health Department spinning spring 2020 canister readings as acceptable, EtO pollution still registers at UNSAFE amounts and above permitted levels. In addition, Illinois has done ZERO to monitor warehouses storing EtO treated products even though StopEtO raised concerns to IL EPA (the agency meant to protect Illinois citizens).Continue reading “Lake County EtO Emissions STILL at Cancerous Levels”

EXPOSING A DANGEROUS LIE

On 8/5/20 the Village of Gurnee (VoG) posted an EtO update filled with LIES in coordination with the Illinois EPA regarding EtO testing results near Vantage. We realize this is a heavy accusation. BUT, allow us to explain. VoG just claimed Vantage is within IEPA permit limits, implying the EtO emission problem is solved. ItContinue reading “EXPOSING A DANGEROUS LIE”

THE GENESIS OF A MAYORAL LIE

I donโ€™t know about you, but I never paid much attention to Mayor Kovarik and her board of trustees. And to quote Americaโ€™s most famed and beloved prostitute Vivian Ward that was a โ€œbig mistake. Big. Huge.โ€ But no more. In order to understand how Kovarik and her board of trustees view ethylene oxide useContinue reading “THE GENESIS OF A MAYORAL LIE”
