U.S. Rep. Mike Bost, R-Murphysboro, whose district includes St. Clair County, sent a letter Monday to the Army Corps office that highlighted security and environmental issues with the proposed site and questioned the accuracy of data in the Corps’ report, which improperly included findings tied to St. Clair counties in Missouri and Michigan.

“I am deeply concerned with the flawed findings that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers issued as justification for the North St. Louis site,” Bost wrote in the letter. “The report's factual errors, blatant omissions, and underestimated risks are nothing short of egregious.

I am compelled to continue fighting this wrongheaded decision during the public comment period and beyond.”
