About the Watershed Plan
The Lake Michigan Watershed Plan will cover the portions of Lake County and seven ravines in northern Cook County that drain to Lake Michigan. The planning process will run from 2019-2020. The Lake Michigan Watershed-Based Plan will identify practices, projects, and programs that can be implemented by stakeholders to reduce pollution and flood damage and protect natural resources. Your input and ideas are important.
