Subject: [CPEO-BIF] "Sen. Donnelly calls for federal takeover of investigation" of TCE in Franklin, Indiana
Sen. Donnelly calls for federal takeover of investigation and cleanup of toxins in Johnson County

WTHR TV-13 News (Indianapolis, IN)
November 18, 2018 

JOHNSON COUNTY - An Indiana Senator is pushing for a "federal takeover" of the cleanup investigation in Franklin following a 13 Investigates report.

The report uncovered documents from 2013 showing toxic chemicals migrated into a Franklin neighborhood and the state failing to act.

Senator Joe Donnelly wants the federal EPA to take over the entire investigation and remediation efforts in Johnson County, calling it a matter of safety.

Scientific evidence showing TCE, a known carcinogen migrating into a Franklin neighborhood went unaddressed for years, even though it was submitted in a 2013 report to the City of Franklin and IDEM by an environmental contractor hired by the city.
