Northern Indiana Public Service Company (NIPSCO) Bailly Generating Station is a coal-fired power plant located on the shore of Lake Michigan in northwest Indiana. The facility occupies approximately 300 acres and is adjacent to a portion of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. NIPSCO produces and supplies electricity to the northern third of Indiana and has been in operation since 1962. EPA selected remedies for the operational portions of the facility with input from the public. We have concluded our investigation and evaluation of the remaining portions of the site, including the off-site area of the Indiana Dunes adjacent to the facility. EPA has concluded that there is unacceptable risk to ecological receptors in the Dunes from the on-site SWMU 15. EPA has, therefore, directed NIPSCO to proceed to a “risk management decision”, or cleanup evaluation. We are actively engaging the National Park Service and Fish & Wildlife Service in this process and will provide the public an opportunity to review and comment on the proposed remedy in the future. More information can be found in the technical documents, below.
