(BLOOMINGTON) - IDEM is responding to I-69 complaints by sending a full-time specialist to oversee the work and to make sure erosion controls are in place after several complaints that the water of Indian Creek has turned brown.

Residents are blaming I-69 constructions. Land has been cleared for the 27-mile section 4 that stretches from U.S. 231 in Greene County to Ind. 37 and Victor Pike in Bloomington.

Piles of dirt sitting on the sides of the roads are eroding and flowing into the creek and its tributaries turning the water brown.

Hopefully the IDEM specialist can address the concerns. The Monroe County Plan Commission has sent a letter to IDEM hoping to find out how state agencies plan to deal with the erosion, and whether they have been monitoring the site.
