Learn How to Have a Voice in Waterway Cleanup Plans

The state is in the process of determining what, if any, additional cleanups are needed for the streams and rivers in your area. This watershed evaluation or Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) process is your opportunity to have a voice in cleaning up your local waterways.

Please set aside Oct. 19 or 20 to find out more about the federal/state TMDL process and how your voice can be heard and can make a difference. This workshop will give you the knowledge and tools to participate in the process of getting our waterways cleaned up.

Merritt Frey from the national Clean Water Network will join with Indiana experts (from the Sierra Club, Save the Dunes, Audubon Society, Hoosier Environmental Council, and Grand Calumet Task Force) to conduct the workshop.

On Oct. 19, the workshop will be held in Michigan City, with Save the Dunes as local coordinator. On Oct. 20, the workshop will be held in Indianapolis, with the Sierra Club as local coordinator.

Michigan City session: Sandra at (219) 879-3937.

Indianapolis session: Lori at (317) 466-9992 or Glenn at (317) 253-7061 ().
