Fawn River restoration redeems stream once muddied by dam release

In 1998, a rapid drawdown of a dam in Northeast Indiana sent 100,000 cubic yards of sediment oozing over a five-mile stretch of the Fawn River's pristine gravel stream bed. The release turned what was one of Indiana's few deep, swift, cobble-bottomed streams into a slow, wide, mud-clogged channel with eroding banks. Now, 15 years later, a set of restoration techniques has some segments of the muddied stream looking as clean as ever. "None of us really knew how successful we were going to be when we started, and we're pretty pleased with where we are at this point," said Neal Lewis, a trustee with the Fawn River Restoration and Conservation Trust , a non-profit group working to return the stream to pre-1998 conditions.

These highly successful programs have been supporting better water quality in communities across America, and in doing so have also formed the heart of the modern citizen science movement.

US Steel Dumping Chromium: Citizens Fighting for Lake Michigan, and Drinkable Water

If you remember the movie “Erin Brockovich,†you are already familiar with hexavalent chromium, a toxic substance that was contaminating the drinking water of people in California in the movie ( and in real life ). Although on the silver screen there was a very satisfying Hollywood resolution to the problem, there has not yet been such a happy ending in real life. The dumping of the hexavalent chromium by PG&E that the film documented took place in the 1950s and 1960s, although the company didn't tell anyone about the problem until the late 1980s. Based on current litigation around the Illinois and Indiana shores of Lake Michigan, startlingly little has changed.
