McHenry County, Chemtool still do not have a deal on pollution case: IEP has become involved.

I received an email response  from the McHenry County States Attorney regarding the current status of their action against Chemtools’ Crystal Lake facility. 

Your request for information on the above referenced matter was forwarded to me.  The Chemtool case is ongoing and was recently continued for status to 10/13/09.  The Illinois EPA has gotten involved and taken over part of the matter which has altered the litigation. There is no final settlement as of yet.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
