Wildflowers grow at the newly restored Roxana Marsh.

(June 2012) The recent completion of a $52 million project to rid Roxana Marsh of contaminated sediment will speed the recovery of Indiana's Grand Calumet River, marking a step forward for one of the Great Lakes' most complex Area of Concern cleanups. Representatives from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the State of Indiana were joined by Congressman Pete Visclosky to discuss the project's impact at an event in East Chicago, Indiana.
