Abstract:Lake Calumet in Illinois was a former glacial lake draining into Lake Michigan. After extensive industrialization and modifications to the area, it now drains to the Des Plaines River, which runs to the Mississippi River. Industrialization and eventual abandonment of several sites near Lake Calumet and associated wetlands have left the area with extensive environmental pollution and possible species extinction.
