Default Future of Cooling Lakes, particularly Hiedecke

I just read the January issue of the Outdoor Notebook. In it, Editor Bob Maciulis makes mention of Gov. Ryan proudly annoucing the agreement between the IDNR and Exelon to secure the future of fishing at the cooling lakes for at least the next 25+ years. A great decision, no doubt. My concern is that they only make mention of LaSalle (April 2025), Braidwood (October 2026), and Clinton (September 2026) as having extended lease agreements, with no lease expiration date stated for Heidecke.

Does anyone have any information on the outdoor recreational future of Heidecke?

Default Exelon Cooling Lakes

Exelon no longer owns Hiedeckie. It was sold to Mission Energy along with the rest of the old ComEd coal and fossil fuel plants. I really hope they are negotiating for the extension of the lease as Hiedeckie is one of my favorites.
