The Indiana Department of Environmental Management referred the Wheeler well field in Anderson to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for long-term cleanup funding.

There is a 60-day public comment period before sites can be added to the EPA’s national priorities list.

The state environmental agency reported finding volatile organic compounds, including trichloroethene, tetrachloroethene and dichloroethene, in the finished water at the area’s treatment plant in 2011. Vinyl chloride was also found in raw water in 2013.
