Little Calumet River Watershed Study
The watersheds covered by this study consist of the West Branch Little Calumet River, Deep River, and Willow Creek. The Little Calumet River includes areas to the east in the City of Portage and west in the City of Hammond and the Town of Highland. This river segment is crossed by the continental divide. From this point, the river flows both east toward the Great Lakes and west toward the Mississippi River.
The Little Calumet River and its tributaries in this study flow through the borders of Hammond, Highland, Griffith, Gary, Hobart, Lake Station, and Portage in Indiana. Portions of this watershed are also located in unincorporated Lake and Porter Counties.
