Indian Creek Watershed Project
The Indian Creek Watershed Project is comprised of watershed stakeholders dedicated to the preservation, protection, and improvement of the Indian Creek sub-watershed of the Des Plaines River. Our mission is to realize a long-term vision for a healthy watershed and an educated citizenry. Our goal is to educate while building partnerships to improve water quality, reduce flooding, and preserve and restore wetlands, woodlands, and other resources for future generations.

The Indian Creek Watershed Project, Ltd. is a non-profit organization formed in the summer of 2000 to promote water quality education and improve conditions in the Indian Creek watershed and beyond. Our effort is a regional one in the Chicago area within the Indian Creek watershed, a sub-basin of the Des Plaines River in northeastern Illinois. The Indian Creek Watershed Project (ICWP) was founded to help improve water quality and reduce flooding via stakeholder education and regional improvement projects. Our organization is unique in Lake County because it is sub-basin oriented and we are working across municipal and township boundaries. Our watershed encompasses parts of the villages of Mundelein, Vernon Hills, Hawthorn Woods, Long Grove, Lincolnshire, Lake Zurich, Kildeer, Buffalo Grove, Indian Creek, and drains from portions of the townships of Fremont, Ela, Vernon, and Libertyville.
