Illinois River Watershed, Vision, Water Quality, Watershed Conditions
The Upper Illinois River Watershed is a special place where the threads of private, public and non‐profit partnerships are woven into the regional fabric of economic vitality; environmental stability, and social responsibility. Through its cultural heritage, the legacy of land stewardship, integrated with respect for personal property rights, continues. Natural resources are restored and sustained within a healthy mosaic of fields, forests, farms, woodlands, wetland prairies, pastures, cities, and naturally flowing streams. It is an incubator for green energy, entrepreneurial, educational and environmental initiatives.
