Indiana Geological Survey Special Report 11; Indiana Geological Survey Environmental Study 8; Lake and Porter Counties are subdivided into three physiographically and geologically distinct regions: (1) the Calumet Lacustrine Plain, (2) the ValparaisoMorainal Area, and (3) the Kankakee Outwash and Lacustrine Plain. The surficial deposits of these regions, which range in thickness from 40 feet near the Kankakee River to more than 250 feet near Valparaiso, Ind,. Are the products, either directly or indirectly, of the Wisconsinan Age of glaciation. The Calumet lake plain is characterized by low-lying complexly intermixed clay, sand, and silt deposits, mostly of glacial Lake Chicago origin , The Valparaiso Moraine forms high ground in the two counties and is composed of clay-rich to fine sandy till. Sand and fine gravel deposits constitute the bulk of the Kankakee Outwash and Lacustrine Plain, this area being the low-lying outwash and flood plain for the glacially derived rivers as well as for the present Kankakee River. The two-county area has an abundance of geologic and geologically related resources; some of the most important are: (1) groundwater of the Kankakee Outwash and Lacustrine Plain and Valparaiso Morainal Area, (2) sand deposits of glacial Lake Chicago and of recent origin...

Thesis (Ph.D.) - Indiana University, Geography, 2010; In the past several decades, exurban areas have grown quickly, and are predicted to continue growing. Two broad schools of thought have emerged to explain low-density growth, one claiming homebuyer preference and the other claiming that local land use controls exclusively require low-density development. Informed by literature on the urban development process and substantive landscapes, this dissertation presents a case study examining how well land use controls in the Chicago exurb of Porter County, Indiana are misaligned or aligned with local preferences. The researcher conducted in-depth interviews with 10 planners, 21 developers, 21 realtors, and 51 residents to garner detailed responses from across the development process regarding both the formal unified development ordinance (UDO) and informal subdivision covenants and restrictions (C&Rs). According to the interviewees' prevailing opinion, the UDO is misaligned with local preferences because it forces densities to be too low, and produces properties that are too costly and too maintenance-intensive. Alternately, a small group of resident and planner interviewees did feel that the UDO matched local preferences because they favored efforts to slow development so that they...
