Salt Creek Watershed
The Salt Creek Watershed Management Plan (WMP) covers an area of approximately 77 square miles in Porter County. The plan’s development was coordinated by Save the Dunes and was approved by IDEM in July 2008. The primary concerns identified by stakeholders include excess nutrient and sediment loading, high pathogen concentrations, and impaired biotic communities. Save the Dunes is currently coordinating the implementation of the Salt Creek WMP through several projects including a cost-share program for best management practices (BMPs), demonstrating low impact development (LID) practices, water quality monitoring, and education and outreach.
