In 2009 the Storm Water Quality Program hosted a watershed sign design contest. The signs are used as part of watershed awareness. Placed in 13 roadside locations throughout town, the signs indicate to drivers their arrival in different subwatersheds that make up the Lake Michigan basin.
There were 15 designs submitted and the Storm Water Board selected the top 4 that were showcased at Town Hall. The public was asked to vote for their favorite.
Chesterton High School student, Jannon Jeffries had the winning design.
