Government to seek $1.8M in penalties over chemical spill at Indiana Dunes NP

The U.S. government has filed a request in federal court to advance a plan costing U.S. Steel $1.8 million for a 2017 toxic spill into Burns Waterway.

The motion to revise its consent decree, or settlement plan, calls for $1.2 million in fines, tighter reporting, and $600,000 for a three-year shoreline water monitoring project, according to filings in the U.S. District Court in Hammond.
