Benzene and other compounds released to the air from gas stations can increase cancer among those living within 500- to 1,000-feet.   The Village of Mundelein does not require the measures adopted by other jurisdictions to protect area residents from the adverse health effects of compounds released at new gas station pumps and from underground storage tanks. 

Please add your name and contact information below to join with us in urging the Mundelein Village Board to adopt requirements guiding new gas station to locations where we can enjoy the benefits these establishments provide without exposing neighbors to harmful fumes. 

Further detail, including the science supporting these concerns, is available at the Mundelein Healthy Neighborhoods Alliance webpage:

We've retained Community & Environmental Defense Services (CEDS) to assist us in preserving Mundelein neighborhoods.  To learn more about CEDS and how they've helped other in defeating poorly planned gas stations visit:
