The Indianapolis Star investigates why millions of fish began dying in the White River, a major stream that runs through Indianapolis and provides drinking water for many residents. The Star, which assigned two reporters full-time to uncovering the mystery, discovered that the wastewater treatment operator thought to be responsible for the disaster did not have a valid operators license at the time of the fish kill. The Star used state documents to show that Guide Corp., the treatment operator, began having problems two years prior to the fish kill.
