EAST CHICAGO, Ind. — Northwestern Indiana residents and environmental advocates say they’re perplexed that it took a federal agency two years to release its first report about blood-lead levels in children who live at a lead-tainted Superfund site in East Chicago. That report from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry found that many young children who lived at the USS Lead Superfund site from 2005 to 2015 were nearly three times more likely to be lead poisoned compared to children living elsewhere in the city.
