The village of Sauget occupies 4.4 square miles in St. Clair County, Illinois. Home to approximately 249 residents, Sauget is located in the American Bottom, the floodplain of the Mississippi River, and is considered part of Greater St. Louis. Sauget was incorporated as “Monsanto” in 1926. It was incorporated largely to provide a liberal regulatory environment and low taxes for the Monsanto chemical plants at a time when local jurisdictions had most of the responsibility for environmental rules. The community was renamed in honor of Leo Sauget, its first village President.


Though Sauget has a low population, it has a lot of industry and is controlled by these industries. Sauget operates the American Bottoms Treatment Plant, a very large sewage treatment plant that serves much of the Illinois side of the St. Louis metropolitan area. Additionally, the village operates a municipal physical/chemical treatment plant that receives industrial wastewater from its factories. This has been noted as one of only three municipal treatment plants of this type in the United States. The Monsanto Plant in Sauget was at one time the nation’s largest producer of PCBs, and the United States Environmental Protection Agency has since designated the plant site, located along Dead Creek, as a superfund site.

Sauget’s history of industrial activity, particularly at chemical treatment plants, makes asbestos exposure an ongoing concern for workers. Those exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma cancer and other asbestos-related diseases. You should know that mesothelioma law firms represent people from Sauget, Illinois who were exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
