TOWN OF PINES — A local environmental group pushing state regulators to ensure the safe removal of coal ash from NIPSCO ponds in Michigan City, and to hold off on removal until after the COVID-19 pandemic is over, has gained another municipal partner.

Earlier this month, the Michigan City Common Council passed a resolution calling for strict controls on removal of the 176,000 cubic yards of coal ash from the Michigan City Generating Station, and now the Town of Pines has passed a similar resolution.
