Calumet Lead Crisis Update – 31 Oct

Only 33 of 332 West Calumet Complex families have found new homes and HUD housing vouchers have technically expired today. But officials reassure that no one will go without a home, that the dates are “targets” rather than “hard-and-fast” deadlines. The city has set 1 December as the target for complete evacuation of the West Calumet Complex.

Both the NWI Times and the Post Tribune reported on Saturday’s East Chicago Undivided meeting and the commencement of soil excavation in zone 2, the latter event also covered by Indiana Public Media today. The Indiana Daily Student contributes a fine, long piece of student journalism on the difficulties West Calumet Complex residents are facing in their search for new homes.
