To optimize its treatment process and improve water quality, Indiana American Water will be switching to chloramines at its Sheridan water treatment facility the week of Nov. 3.

Chloramination, the practice of mixing a small amount of ammonia in the disinfection process, will optimize and enhance the treatment process in Sheridan and also reduce the likelihood of creating disinfection byproducts (DBP) during the treatment process. DBPs are potentially harmful contaminants that form when disinfectants react with naturally occurring organic materials in the source water.

  • Rugs, table-toppers available at museum
    One of the purchases made for the new museum located in downtown Sheridan is a loom. Over the last year or so, several Sheridan Historical Society members have taken the time to learn to weave and the result has been several small rugs and table-toppers. Sizes are in the range of 2 feet by 3 feet, and the fabric textures and colors are varied.

  • The Hamilton County Health Department will open a new vaccine clinic at Sheridan High School on Tuesday, July 13. The new clinic is designed to help boost the number of fully vaccinated residents in northern Hamilton County.
    “When we break our vaccination numbers down by Zip Code, we see considerably fewer people getting vaccinated in the northern, more rural area of our county,” says Chris Walker, emergency preparedness coordinator for the Hamilton County Health Department. “We hope the convenience of having a clinic closer to those residents, open during evening and weekend hours, will encourage more families to get vaccinated.”

  • Historical Society trying to solve mystery
    The Sheridan Historical Society has lots of items of historical significance and most of them have interesting stories associated with them. Occasionally, however, we receive a donation, and we are just not sure of the creator/author or of its significance or of the story behind it. Here is one of our conundrums.
