Duneland got a good soaking on Monday.

According to Bill Williams, chief operator at the Chesterton wastewater treatment plant, a total of 2.6 inches of rain fell between Monday morning and the early hours today.

At some point during the heavy rain on Monday night, the plantís 1.2-million storage basin began automatically accepting runoff-diluted wastewater--to give the plant time to catch up to the flow--until some 276,000 gallons filled the tank to a depth of 4.6 feet, Williams said.

There was no combined sewer overflow into the Little Calumet River and the storage basin worked as designed.
