Water Crisis

August 2021 Update:

Council President John Harshbarger informed those in attendance at the July 26th council meeting of a court decision to the Preliminary Injunction filed last year regarding the drinking water contamination in the Town of Andrews. Judge Chad Kukelhan, in Adams County, denied the Town’s motion on February 18, 2021. There is no explanation for the filing delay and resulting late notification to the Town and Taft Law. Apparently, the Judge felt no emergency existed since test results never indicated finished water with VOCs present over the State MCL, but right at the maximum allowed. The Town must now wait until the full hearing on the case which was filed in 2016.  Meanwhile, Council has decided to proceed on their own with relocating the wells to a clean water aquifer. Multiple funding sources are being pursued.


May 2021 Water Quality Update: These are the latest results of the Town’s required VOC testing of the well water. Vinyl Chloride and cis-1,2-Dichloroethene remain present in the finished drinking water, however the numbers are not above the State’s MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level) according to IDEM.

May 27, 2021 Report VOCS in Drinking Water


Follow the legal proceedings and read court documents at  Search under Docket # 35D01-2006-CT-000338.

Adams County Circuit Court Judge Chad E. Kukelhan will announce his decision on the Town’s Emergency Motion for Preliminary Injunction in 2021. 

The Town of Andrews’ Preliminary Injunction will be heard on November 9, 2020 in Decatur, Indiana at the Adams County Courthouse beginning at 8:30 AM. Your attendance and support is encouraged, however seating in the court room will be limited due to COVID-19 regulations.

Plaintiff’s Emergency Motion to Remand

Brief in Support of Emergency Motion to Remand to State Court

As of early July, IDEM tests on the town’s finished water show all VOCs are below the State’s recommended mcl. According to Indiana standards, the water is “safe” to use now that the air stripper is back online.

However, the Town of Andrews advises residents not to consume water due to the potential presence of  Vinyl Chloride,  cis-1,2-DCE, and possibly TCE in the water. Please do not drink or cook with the water if you are serviced by the town’s water utility. To limit possible exposure to vapors, use lukewarm (not hot) water for laundry, dishes, and brief showers or baths. Do not heat or boil the water. All of these measures are precautionary until the town can guarantee the water is being properly treated with a reliable method  to remove VOCs before entering the water plant. The current air stripper equipment and building is owned and operated by Raytheon Technologies, formerly United Technologies, and is not accessible by the Town of Andrews utility employees. In  the past, the Town was not notified and an electronic warning system was never put in place  for when the air stripper fails.

A complaint was filed in Huntington Superior Court June 19, 2020. The complaint will be heard on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at 10:00 a.m.
