Indiana Department of Environmental Management Assures Improvement in Air Quality Despite Conflicting Reports

Play

As Indiana residents celebrate Earth Day this year, the state government says air quality throughout the state is improving. But that official line is complicated by reports from some other organizations. News Director Joe Crawford has the story for today’s WFHB community report.

Additional I69 Pollution Complaints Filed

This morning a landowner in Southern Monroe County filed his 11th formal complaint since March, about pollution in the waterways near his home. Much like his previous complaints, as well as those of his neighbors, Thomas Tokarski provided photos that show the creeks and streams filled with brown, sediment-filled water. The cause is erosion from the Interstate 69 right-of-way, where crews have been clearing vegetation for months. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has cited contractors working on the project with failure to control the erosion, and some contractors have been forced to stop construction altogether while they deal with the issue. But Tokarski says they haven’t fixed the problem, and the rain storms late last week led to even more contamination. Assistant News Director Joe Crawford spoke with Tokarski, and we bring you that conversation for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
