NIPSCO to Begin Project on St. Marys River

NIPSCO is going to begin a voluntary remediation project on the St. Marys River soon which will result in some periods of closure of the river near The Old Fort, just south of Headwaters Park, along with some rerouting of nearby trails. You can find more information about the project on the NIPSCO website. For additional questions, please contact Dana Berkes from NIPSCO at 260-439-1330 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
