Didion Plant To Be Dismantled Beginning Monday

7/5/17 – The owner of the Didion corn mill in Cambria says the plant that exploded May 31st will start coming down for good next Monday — and then it will be rebuilt with the “best available technology.” Five employees were killed in the blast, and all of the hospitalized survivors have returned home. John Didion says he still does not know what caused the explosion, and inspectors from both the U-S Occupational Safety and Health Agency and the U-S Chemical Safety Board remain on the site. Didion gave up an update to the Cambria Village Board this week, saying the ethanol and grain units can resume production as soon as the demolition is done.
