The purpose of this document is to provide guidance and information to Elkhart County and other entities interested in the water quality of the Puterbaugh Creek – Heaton Lake watershed. The planning process for the watershed management plan was initiated by the Elkhart County Commissioners as part of an IDEM Section 205(j) Grant Project. The goal of the grant was to address water quality issues related to point and nonpoint source pollution in the watershed. The Puterbaugh Creek watershed was selected as the study area due in large part to the expansive growth and development within its boundary.
