(STEUBEN COUNTY) - The Indiana Department of Natural Resources is set to pay 8.5 million dollars as part of a settlement reached in a lawsuit alleging they violated the Clean Water Act in 1998.

In May of 2000 several residents in Steuben County sued the governor and the DNR for allegedly releasing water from a mill pond into the Fawn River and causing the death of 157 fish and filling the waterway with mud. A decade later, the two sides have reached a settlement for the state to pay out money to clean up the river.

Under the settlement, the DNR admits no fault and no damages can be collected.
