Some towers for new ComEd lines could be erected in Muirhead Springs
Jan 29, 2015 8:02 PM - Some Kane County residents facing a future with new ComEd power towers running through their property may yet get a reprieve. Kane County Forest Preserve District officials worked a deal with ComEd to allow the lines to run through the Muirhead Springs preserve in trade for $319,000. The preserve would also benefit by having only five power towers in or near it instead of 17 in the current design. The catch is the ICC must agree to this late alteration in the plan. And, the owners of the Frank Lloyd Wright house would now have to see these towers instead of the nearby farmers.
