This data was compiled by IDEM for inclusion in their GIS data repository to support a feasibility study of remediation
and restoration of the Grand Calumet River and Indiana Harbor Canal. RAILROADS_GRAND_CAL is an ESRI feature class representing the
rail roads traversing the adjacent cities of East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond Indiana. It is a compilation of city rails
line ESRI .shp files from the cities' GIS databases. The rail shapefile from each city was imported to a single ESRI feature
class, the common attributes from the city shapefiles are included in the RAILROADS_GRAND_CAL feature class.
RAILROADS_GRAND_CAL was compiled as a base map layer for the planning and execution of the remediation of contaminated sediments
found in the Grand Calumet River and Indiana Harbor Ship Canal. The cities of East Chicago, Gary, and Hammond were asked
to provide their GIS data to IDEM for use by IDEM and ACOE in the GIS database to support the remediation and restoration
of the waterways of north Lake County Indiana.
These data were obtained from the Indiana Department of Environmental Mangagement (IDEM).
