PSGC NAMED INDUSTRIAL PLANT OF THE YEAR

The Prairie State Generating Company (PSGC) is honored to announce that it was recently named Industrial Plant of the Year by the Illinois Association of Water Pollution Control Operators (IAWPCO). The IAWPCO has been presenting awards to deserving operators and their facilities for over 65 years.

Prairie State was nominated for the award by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA) for exceptional management of the power plant’s water treatment facility. Facilities that receive nominations are recognized for their excellence in complying with regulatory limits, cleanliness and organization, operator knowledge, and safety programs.


“Prairie State’s environmental and water treatment teams work diligently to maintain exemplary environmental compliance at our facility,” said Don Gaston, President and CEO of PSGC. “It is truly an honor to be selected for this award from among the top industrial plants in the state of Illinois.”

As a part of its supercritical power plant processes, Prairie State treats its water on-site, to achieve the quality standards necessary for operations.

PSGC Recognized by American Red Cross

In January 2015, an all-volunteer group of employees who believed that we can and should invest in the community created a Blood Drive Committee. The committee recognized that blood donations could raise the outlook for healthcare self-sufficiency in southern Illinois, and the sheer importance of saving the lives of local people. This week, the American Red Cross recognized Prairie State, the Blood Drive Committee, and our employees for their support in 2015 and 2016. In 2015, 296 pints of blood were collected, and 396 were collected in 2016-- this equates to more than 2,000 lives saved!
