Foxconn site spilling into Pike River

Foxconn site spilling into Pike River

Foxconn Draining to Pike River

September 4, 2018

Concerned citizens in Mount Pleasant have been documenting the spill of silt from the Foxconn development into the Pike River. The water has breached the containment barrier at the building site and is flowing through the "Lamparek Ditch" and then into the Pike. The attached video was shot yesterday. This was exactly the sort of thing that citizens in the area (and in Illinois) have been concerned would happen despite the money spent to mitigate damage from runoff.
