Brooks School Cumberland Parks reopen to public


FISHERS—The Town of Fishers has reopened Brooks School Park and Cumberland Park to the public today following a lift station failure that caused sewage backup earlier in the week. After water quality testing showed the water supply has returned to its pre-spill condition, town officials decided to reopen the parks to Fishers residents.

“We are confident that Hamilton Southeastern Utilities took the appropriate cleanup measures and, after multiple water quality tests of Mud Creek, we are ready to open the parks back to the community,” said Fishers Town Manager Scott Fadness.

Hamilton Southeastern Utilities has also treated the soil that was previously contaminated at both parks. All areas that were earlier affected by the sewage overflow have been inspected by HSE Utilities and Town of Fishers staff.
