VALPARAISO | The city's Utilities Board is expected to vote in two weeks on a recommendation to the council on whether Valparaiso should continue to add fluoride to the city water supply.
VALPARAISO | In a 5 to 2 vote, the city's Fluoride Commission recommended the city continue to add fluoride to the water system, but the group unanimously agreed the issue should be addressed again in no more than five years.
VALPARAISO | It took the city Council barely five minutes to cast the final votes Monday approving more than $20 million in bonds for the improvements to the sewage treatment plant, the expansion of the airport water treatment plant and the drilling of additional wells.
Valparaiso is looking at whether to continue fluoridating the city's drinking water. The answer should be easy.
HAMMOND | A Griffith man was sentenced Friday to two years on probation for discharging pollution through the Hammond Sanitary District's water treatment works without a permit.
Fluoride in the water, introduced in the 1940s, continues to be a controversial topic. No one is calling it a Communist plot anymore, but the two sides still can be heated about it.
LAKE STATION | City officials remain focused on improving the quality of life for residents, Mayor Keith Soderquist said.
INDIANAPOLIS | Lowell, Winfield and similarly situated Indiana communities are one step closer to annexing their out-of-town water or wastewater treatment facilities without annexing the land in between.
LAKE STATION | Lake Station residents using city water are advised to follow a general boil water advisory until further notice, Mayor Keith Soderquist said.
Those who say, "It must be something in the water" might be right. The water has plenty of stuff in it, including fluoride, and once again this week a Valpo resident asked the city to stop fluoridation.
Valparaiso is working to end the release of untreated sewage into Salt Creek, most recently through the opening of a new combined sewer overflow disinfection facility. It's a welcome development.
VALPARAISO | The city's Flint Lake water treatment plant sprang a leak over the Memorial Day weekend -- causing a mess and a few tense moments before repairs were made.
VALPARAISO | Having five homes register higher copper levels in the water than is allowed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not mean Valparaiso's water is unsafe.
ArcelorMittal Burns Harbor moved a step closer to starting construction of a large restricted waste landfill on its property, gaining approval from the town to continue.
VALPARAISO | Recent tests of water from faucets in older homes turned up five cases of excess copper, a Water Department official said Tuesday.
