Calumet Lead Crisis Update – 30 Sept

A reminder that We The People, who are forming a community advisory group, is hosting a public meeting tomorrow from 2 to 4 pm at American Legion Allied Post 369, 1401 W. Chicago Avenue.

As reported in both the NWI Times and the Post-Tribune, the EPA plans to begin soil replacement in zone 3, the East Calumet neighborhood by this Sunday. Up to two feet of soil will be replaced in some properties, no mention of where the contaminated soils will ultimately end up.

Will the lead and arsenic crisis in East Chicago become a major issue in the Indiana Senate race? An op-ed from the Evansville Courier seems to think so.
