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.

  • Indiana American Water will conduct water main flushing in the Sheridan service area from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Wednesday (Oct. 21).
    The company conducts the annual maintenance program to assure high-quality water service and to ensure fire hydrants are operational.
    According to Senior Operations Superintendent Ryan Smith, “Water main and fire hydrant flushing is an important part of a regular maintenance program for water distribution systems. Indiana American Water consistently meets or exceeds all drinking water standards.”

  • Maggie Adams gets scholarship from Sheridan Rotary
    One of the strong commitments for Rotary International is to encourage people to further their education and make contributions back to society. The awarding of scholarships is one of many ways Rotary helps achieve that goal.
    The Sheridan Rotary Club is a good example.
    Recently, Sheridan High School graduate Maggie Adams was awarded a $500 scholarship from the local club.
    Ms. Adams will be using the scholarship at Purdue University.

  • Legacy of George Boxley continues
    I recently ran across an interesting article on pioneer and abolitionist George Boxley in the Sept. 15, 1924 Noblesville Daily Ledger.
    Unlike many of the stories you’ll find about Boxley, the focus of this piece wasn’t on his anti-slavery activities, but rather on his role as Adams Township’s first teacher.
    Most of the information was taken from the memories of Sheridan resident Phineas G. Pearson, who as a youngster had been one of Boxley’s students. Although Pearson died in 1902, he’d spoken so often and so fondly of his experiences in the township’s first school that his tales were still remembered over 20 years later.

  • Library’s Summer Readers donate to Youth Assistance Program
    The Sheridan Public Library’s Summer Reading Program, “Imagine Your Story,” recently wrapped up with readers eager to help out the community. Covid-19 led to a different approach this summer by moving SPL to an online format for all readers (pre-K through 12th grade).
    Readers were challenged to complete different levels of reading dependent on age group. The children earned weekly prizes and worked toward a community goal. For each book read, participants earned a donation credit to Sheridan Youth Assistance Program.

  • Governor Eric J. Holcomb delivered a statewide address today to order that Hoosiers remain in their homes except when they are at work or for permitted activities, such as taking care of others, obtaining necessary supplies, and for health and safety. The order is in effect from March 25 to April 7.
    “The next two weeks are critical if we are to slow the spread of COVID-19, and we must slow the spread. You must be part of the solution, not the problem,” said Gov. Holcomb.
    The first positive case of COVID-19 in Indiana was reported on March 6. Since then the number of positive cases has increased on a near daily basis, escalating as the capacity to test has grown. As of this morning, the number of tests completed in Indiana is 1,960, the number of positive cases is 259 and 7 deaths have been reported.

  • Sheridan Historical Society preserves history
    The Historical Society in Sheridan is in the process of saving the old senior high school class pictures that were donated years ago from the old Adams School building. These were huge framed pictures that had hung on the school’s walls and had individual student pictures and student names. Some of the framed pictures measured nearly 4 feet by 4 feet. 
    Unfortunately, over the years many of the old pictures were fading to the point that preserving them digitally made sense. And too, some of them were so big it would have made it difficult to display them on the limited wall space at the new museum.
