The coal-fired power plant near Bartonville is working with the state EPA to to reduce sulfur dioxide emissions according to parent company officials. 

The Dynegy officials  says they’ve entered into a voluntary agreement to continue using low-sulfur coals and help reduce allowable sulfur dioxide emissions by 90-percent.  

 Kady McFadden is with the Sierra Club Beyond Coal campaign in Peoria.  She says the pollution-reductions are mandatory under the Clean Air Act.  Area environmental groups have been calling for more stringent requirements on Illinois Coal-Fired Power Plants.
