East Chicago Is Toxic

"Some environmental law experts say the national attention on Flint may have finally ignited action in East Chicago, Indiana, where residents finally learned the scope of the issues with their soil just two weeks ago. The EPA office responsible for East Chicago, Region 5, is the same one that oversaw Flint, Michigan's contaminated water system."

Assignment Desk: EPA Region 5 is based in Chicago. Perhaps a full review is warranted.


"The unfolding health emergency in East Chicago is a window into a larger environmental justice crisis playing out in neighborhoods across the country. And the historically minority, lower-income residents will suffer the consequences."
