Trail Creek Watershed
The Trail Creek watershed covers an area of approximately 59.1 square miles in northern LaPorte County. The plan’s development was coordinated by the Sanitary District of Michigan City and was approved by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) in 2007. The primary concerns identified by stakeholders include E. coli (pathogens), erosion and sedimentation, nutrients, and hydromodification. The LaPorte County Soil & Water Conservation District (SWCD) has recently received a 319 grant from IDEM to implement a cost-share program targeted toward critical areas in both developed and agricultural areas.
