   Regional Watershed Assessments   

Most of the following watershed assessments consist of a four-volume report covering the area’s geology, water resources, living resources, socio-economic profile, and environmental quality. Most include a color summary report, and several also provide a historical account of the area’s ecology.

If you wish to order an assessment, please use IDNR's online publication ordering system at http://dnr.state.il.us/publications.

Technical volumes of the various watershed assessments can be found here.

To go to an on-line version of the color summary, click on the highlighted assessment title.
