MICHIGAN CITY — Environmental groups are applauding an announcement from NIPSCO that work to remove coal ash from ponds in Michigan City will be delayed until spring, but the groups still have other concerns.

NIPSCO announced on Thursday that the work to close its five coal ash ponds at the Michigan City Generating Station will be moved until spring 2021.
