The moraines were formed by pauses and readvances of glacial ice.

Note how the moraines are separate from one another southeast of Hoopeston, but merge into each other to the southwest.

The Chatsworth moraine acts as a stream divide separating drainage ultimately going to either the Illinois River (north) or Wabash River (south).
