MERRILLVILLE | Merrillville property owners required to have flood insurance could see their premiums drop by 15 percent this fall.
Many people used to see the Little Calumet River as little more than a murky polluted ditch prone to nasty flooding, but now it is increasingly being looked at as a potential backdrop for restaurants and other businesses.
Everybody in south suburban Cook County is aware that on April 18, the area was drenched with rain from the storm that knocked out power in many households, caused huge traffic delays and flooded basements.
The Little Calumet River levee maintenance legislation now sailing through the Indiana Senate must not be allowed to sink.
Residents have asked, "Why are certain properties in Highland and Hammond being removed from flood insurance requirements, and when will Munster be removed?"
It is good to see more than 1,000 properties along the Little Calumet River removed from the flood plain, erasing a costly flood insurance obligation.
On the national news we have seen the impact of the swollen Mississippi River on the communities through which it travels. And so we hear about Cairo, Memphis, Vicksburg and ultimately New Orleans, a city very familiar with the destruction that can be caused by excess water.
CROWN POINT | Tens of thousands of property owners in the Little Calumet River's watershed may be asked to pay a sliding-scale fee to complete and maintain its floodwall system.
