Hearing on Use Management Plan for Little Calumet River

Share this post

The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore will be hosting a public hearing next week seeking public comment on a draft Environmental Assessment for the East Branch of the Little Calumet River Use Management Plan. Officials report the document will explore and evaluate a full range of recreational opportunities and the environmental impacts of those activities. For the purpose of this plan, the portion of the East Branch of the Little Calumet River which lies within Indiana Dunes national Lakeshore was divided into four sections referred to as “reaches” based on the boundaries of the National Lakeshore and environmental conditions.
Reach 1 extends through the Heron Rookery (River Mile 16.4 – River Mile 14.8).  Reach 2 extends from U.S. Highway 20 to Indiana State Road 149 (River Mile 7.7 – River Mile 4.5). Reach 3 extends from Indiana State Road 149 to the Izaak Walton Property (River Mile 4.5 – River Mile 1.6).  Reach 4 extends from the Burns Waterway Small Boat Harbor to Portage Lakefront and Riverwalk (River Mile 1.0 – River Mile 0). 
The National Lakeshore will host a public meeting at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center at 1215 North State Road 49 in Porter, Indiana, on June 10, 2014, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The meeting will feature a brief presentation, informational displays, and a question and answer session.
If you are unable to attend the public meeting, a copy of the draft Environmental Assessment for the East Branch of the Little Calumet River Use Management Plan will be available for review online starting on June 11, 2014 at  http://parkplanning.nps.gov/indu.
