Sauder Schelkopf is investigating a potential lawsuit as a result of an explosion at the Calumet Water Reclamation Plant on August 30, 2018 that resulted in injuries to many workers. Eyewitnesses and workers on-site confirm that a loud boom came from below the ground and blew the roof off the building trapping workers in debris. Calumet Water Reclamation, the oldest plant in the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD), began operations in 1922 and serves over 1 million people. It is believed the explosion was caused by a build-up of methane in the sewer pipes.
