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.

  • Historical Society trying to solve mystery
    The Sheridan Historical Society has lots of items of historical significance and most of them have interesting stories associated with them. Occasionally, however, we receive a donation, and we are just not sure of the creator/author or of its significance or of the story behind it. Here is one of our conundrums.

    This service doesn't require an Internet connection or anything other than a phone line, a desire to listen to a story and a little curiousity!
    Want to take advantage of this new service? Then just call (317) 999-9966 and listen to a story.
