Environmental group opposes dam on White River

– The Hoosier Environmental Council has added its name to the list of environmental groups opposing a proposed seven-mile long reservoir along the White River in central Indiana, saying it would have harmful and long-lasting consequences.

Madison County officials last year proposed the new reservoir, saying it would boost economic development, improve flood control, create prime real estate for waterfront housing and increase property values.

Hoosier Environmental Council senior policy director Tim Maloney is calling for an alternative to the Mounds Reservoir project that does not include damming the river. He says a free flowing river and adjoining natural lands can provide a novel approach to sustainable economic development.

He says the council is against replacing a free-flowing river ecosystem with an artificial reservoir.
