Your help makes a difference!

newspaperDo you recall how grim the future of the White River seemed 20 years ago, as millions of dead fish began appearing in the waterway right around the holidays? It was the result of a deliberate chemical discharge by a Central Indiana manufacturing plant.

The Indianapolis Star focused on what happened and what it means for today in an excellent article — 113 tons of dead fish: Indiana’s worst environmental disaster, 20 years later, by Sarah Bowman, The Indianapolis Star, December 19, 2019.
