North Branch Elkhart River study was released in October of 2020. This is an excellent comprehensive study and understanding of the overall functional health of the North Branch Elkhart River (NBER) basin in northeast Indiana. Christopher B. Burke Engineering, LLC was asked to develop a flood risk management plan for the NBER based on investigation of overall stream function and flooding in the mainstem NBER from its headwaters on the far east side of Noble County to the confluence with the South Branch Elkhart River near Ligonier.
The study concluded that overall, the NBER system is one of the most naturally functioning river systems in the state, and that great care should be taken to preserve this remarkable resource.
