Recent Information

Indiana University does not regularly receive current information, but some things are available from the IDEM though their Virtual File Cabinet. Clicking on the site names below will give you documents related to that site, but in no particular order and with no regard to subject matter. Also, you may only retrieve 500 results at a time.

To narrow your search, go to the main Virtual File Cabinet Document Search and put the Facility ID into the "Full Text Search" box. Then, you may choose a range of dates, program, and/or document type. Again, the results will be in no particular order, but you can copy the results into a spreadsheet to sort them.
