North Mill Creek / Dutch Gap Watershed Plan

Project Description


Northwater assisted Lake County in finalizing a watershed-based implementation plan. The project was unique and challenging due to its location in both Illinois and Wisconsin.

Roles included developing an action and implementation strategy and plan in addition to performing advanced GIS analysis and mapping. Northwater built a custom GIS-based pollution load model, identified over 150 site-specific projects and calculated the expected pollution load reductions. Northwater also conducted a critical area analysis using GIS, a field assessment of watershed conditions, and coordinated with local landowners and stakeholders.
