Calumet Lead Crisis Update – 1 Oct

East Chicago residents took their first steps towards building a Community Advisory Group (CAG), with a meeting at the American Legion hall, the first public meeting held independent of any elected office holder. Residents spoke to their concerns, among many: the rights of and resources for residents who left the community before the crisis broke, instances of re-contamination, the possibility of contaminated water flooding homeowners’ basements, and a seniors’ group home whose owner has refused the EPA permission to test the property. A Storify from Gary AREA of videos, photos and live Tweets is available here.
