Here by the west branch of the Little Calumet River, Joe Exl, senior water resources planner at the Northwest Indiana Regional Planning Commission, explains an initiative that will facilitate pollution reduction and habitat restoration of the nearby Deep River-Portage Burns Waterway. This waterway drains about 180 square miles in Lake and Porter counties and is the largest of six watersheds located within the Little Calumet-Galien sub-basin. Leslie Dorworth, IISG aquatic ecologist specialist, is helping with community outreach on the project.
