ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Six Ameren Corporation employees, including a company vice president, are scheduled to testify today during an
investigative hearing into the Taum Sauk reservoir collapse.
The Missouri Public Service Commission hearing in Jefferson City marks the first time Ameren officials have testified publicly before utility regulators about the 2005 collapse of the reservoir at the hydroelectric plant in southeast Missouri.
The P-S-C launched an investigation in June, after the release of a highway patrol report into the collapse. P-S-C spokesman Mark Hughes says today's hearing will begin with testimony from James Alexander, dam safety chief for the Department of Natural Resources.
