This week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk about the state of Indiana’s lakes, rivers, and streams.

Excess sediment has collected in Griffy Lake in Bloomington, in part due to development upstream of the lake. This week on Noon Edition, we'll talk with panelists about what is being done to clean up local waterways.

A recently released report from a national environmental group says Indiana’s coal-fired power plants release high quantities of mercury that can pollute rivers, lakes and streams.

Environmental groups and policy makers are working together to find ways to clean up this kind of pollution. This week on Noon Edition, we’ll talk about the state of Indiana’s waterways.
