To optimize its treatment process and improve water quality, Indiana American Water will be switching to chloramines at its Sheridan water treatment facility the week of Nov. 3.

Chloramination, the practice of mixing a small amount of ammonia in the disinfection process, will optimize and enhance the treatment process in Sheridan and also reduce the likelihood of creating disinfection byproducts (DBP) during the treatment process. DBPs are potentially harmful contaminants that form when disinfectants react with naturally occurring organic materials in the source water.

  • Steve Martin to retire from library

    Sheridan Public Library Director, Steve Martin, will retire Dec. 31, 2019 after 12 years of service.

    “As a small community library, we are able to interact with our customers on a personal level. It is that reaching out - that one-on-one relationship - that means so much to people,” says Martin. “I feel that is perhaps the primary reason why the library has become such an important ‘go-to’ spot in this community. I fully expect it to continue.” He continues, “This community has been a pleasant experience for me because of its size. I grew up on a farm in a small community in western New York, so Sheridan is a very comfortable fit for me. I immensely enjoy chatting with and getting to know the people in the community.”

  • Library's special tree a sight to see

    The Sheridan Public Library has once again combined a love of reading with the spirit of the holiday and another Christmas tree made of books has been created!

    Steve Martin, library director, put the finishing touches on the library’s annual creation. Martin says he began this venture about five years ago and each year the finished tree looks better than its predecessor. This year is no exception.

  • Progress looms at Sheridan Historical Society Museum
    A recently purchased addition to the local museum is the loom pictured here. The previous owners—Dort and Pokey Pickett—have been spending some time of late at the museum showing some of the staff how to operate the loom with the idea that this will make an attractive visual effect for visitors to observe. Visitors who have never seen a loom up close before will be fascinated by the complexity of the machine and intrigued by the fabric that is produced. Obviously this small loom is a far cry from the modern automated factory looms in commercial use today but the principle remains the same: string of one sort or another is turned into fabric.

  • Happy (brrrrrr) Halloween!
    Staff members of the Sheridan Public Library prepare to brave the cold and snow for Trunk or Treat on Main Street. Despite the terrible weather, the event in uptown Sheridan was relatively well attended and certainly considered a success. Many thanks to the Sheridan Main Street Committee for continuing this annual event. Pictured getting ready at the library are Miss Patty (Barker), Mr. Steve (Martin) and Ms. Isabel (Payne).

  • Rotary in flow with water story
    It was late last year when the Sheridan Water Utility was purchased by the Indiana American Water Company, a subsidiary of the larger American Water Company, the nation's largest investor-owned water and wastewater services company. At their Aug. 20 meeting, Sheridan Rotary’s special guest was Ryan Smith, the Senior Operations Superintendent for Indiana American Water Company. Smith is in charge of the Sheridan water utility and as luck would have, he is also a Noblesville Rotarian.

  • Pam Harwood joins Rotary

    Like a lot of service clubs in smaller communities, new members can be hard to come by and younger members are particularly difficult to recruit.

    That is why Sheridan Rotarians are very happy to celebrate new member Pam Harwood joining our club.

  • Dr. Pence speaks to Grandpa Les' Club

    Sheridan Rotary had the pleasure of a special guest recently, Dr. Orey Pence, grandson of Rotary member Les Pence.

    Dr. Pence graduated from the IU School of Dentistry just this past May and was invited to speak to the club members about the newest developments in the field of general dentistry. It was an eye-opening talk because most of the members remember the old days when a trip to the dentist was an occasion of great anxiety.
