A suburban family has been trying to get help from BP, after their car was crippled this summer, in the wake of a fuel contamination problem at their refinery in Whiting, Ind.
BP said Thursday it has fixed the problem that forced a recall of fuel in Northwest Indiana, the Chicago area, and the Milwaukee area, but has halted sales of premium and midgrade gas in those areas.
Mechanical problems could be caused by unleaded regular gasoline that came from the company’s Whiting, Ind. facility between Aug. 13 and 17.
CBS 2 has learned the temporary fix to the tainted water system in Sauk Village might cost far more than anybody thought before it’s finished.
Sauk Village’s recent woes over contaminated drinking water have served as a reminder of similar problems another Chicago suburb faced five years ago, when residents discovered their drinking water had been contaminated for years.
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency has stepped in to help Sauk Village officials find a way to clean their town’s contaminated water supply.
Earlier this week, residents had been told that cancer-causing vinyl chloride made the water unsafe. Business owners were told to use alternative sources of water.
There is still no timetable for when the water in Sauk Village will be safe to drink, and some say the only solution may be to start stocking up on bottled water.
The estate of a southwest suburban man has been given a large jury award, more than three years after he died from contaminated blood-thinning drugs.
