IDEM and the Citizens Advisory for the Remediation of the Environment (CARE) Committee held the 2017 Annual Grand Calumet River Area of Concern (AOC) Seminar on October 26, 2017. In honor of the 30th Anniversary of the designation of the region as an AOC, the theme was selected as “The Grand Calumet River AOC: Past, Present, and Future.”

The free all-day seminar, located at the Diamond Center in Gary, Indiana, featured presentations by federal, state, and local partners in the ecosystem restoration effort. One of this year’s highlights was a panel discussion covering the history of the AOC. Approximately 100 attendees were present at this year’s event.
