Ameren Illinois crews are in the process of inspecting 800 circuits in Madison, Macoupin and Jersey County as part of their annual safety compliance check. The checks will include inspectors visiting businesses and residences in the area to ensure that certain specifications are met.

If a compliance violation is found, Ameren will notify the property owner who is required to cover the cost of any repairs or retrofitting required to bring their service back into compliance.
