East Branch Little Calumet
The East Branch Little Calumet River watershed covers an area of approximately 74 square miles in northern Porter and LaPorte Counties. Save the Dunes has recently (Fall 2011) been awarded a 319 grant from IDEM to coordinate the development of a watershed management plan for this watershed. Some of the early concerns identified by stakeholders include pathogens, sedimentation, and nutrients.
More information about the East Branch Little Calumet River Watershed Management Plan will be available soon on the Save the Dunes website. http://www.savedunes.org/
