  • Why Use Seat belts? Because They Save Lives!

    April 23, 2017 No comments

    Belt up for Life Indiana- We’ve heard the excuses. They wrinkle my clothes. It doesn’t fit me right. If my car is on fire after a crash I don’t want to be trapped in a seat belt. I wasn’t traveling that far. Troopers that have worked the road for even a short period of time can easily recount having heard these and similar excuses for not wearing a seat belt. The truth is, there are no excuses.

    Within the last week Indiana State Police troopers have investigated two crashes, one in Marion County with five people that were ejected after a rollover crash and another crash in Knox County where two people were ejected.  In both of these crashes indications are seat belts were not being used.

  • Health Department Urges Homeowners To Maintain Their Septic Systems

    April 19, 2017 No comments

    High seasonal water table can cause malfunctions for systems

    HENDRICKS COUNTY – Spring is finally here, and public health officials want to remind residents with septic systems to take steps to protect and maintain their system.

    “Septic systems that are properly designed, installed, and maintained can provide excellent wastewater treatment,” says Ginger Harrington, Environmental Health Team Lead at the Hendricks County Health Department. “It is cheaper to maintain a septic system than to replace it.”

    A septic system filters disease-causing bacteria and viruses out of household wastewater from toilets, sinks, bathtubs, washers, and other wastewater sources. When it is well-maintained and working properly, it keeps residents and the community safe from groundwater and surface water contamination, which can spread disease in humans and animals if they drink, cook, play in, or use the water for any reason.
