Owners Urged To Protect Their Rights As Ameren’s Illinois Rivers Transmission Project Is Coming

Some segments of Ameren’s Illinois Rivers Transmission Project were approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission on Aug. 20.

The approval includes a path in Edgar and Clark County.

The power line plan will likely be tied up in court challenges for a while.

Ameren will seek a rehearing because the ICC rejected parts of the 300-mile transmission line and areas for substations across Illinois.

If some landowners feel that they were not properly notified regarding the proposed route and they want re-dress before the ICC they must file a petition to intervene and petition for rehearing with the ICC by Sept. 19.

If they don’t file by then they will lose their rights.

Land owners are being warned that a Texas land-rights firm has been aggressive in obtaining right-of-way agreements.

All landowners should obtain legal council before signing anything.

Ameren does not have eminent domain at this time so they can not take land.
