Friday morning Indiana American Water placed its Ogden Dunes treatment facility back in service after water sample results confirmed no impacts to its Lake Michigan source water from recent chemical releases from two area steel mills. The company shut down the facility last Tuesday as a precautionary measure after officials from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management alerted them of a chemical release at the U.S. Steel facility in Portage, Ind.
The company used water from the Borman Park water treatment facility in Gary, Ind. to serve its
Lake and Porter county customers during the Ogden Dunes shutdown.
