Environmental Setting of the Upper Illinois River Basin and Implications for Water Quality By Terri L. Arnold, Daniel J. Sullivan, Mitchell A. Harris, Faith A.

Fitzpatrick, Barbara C. Scudder, Peter M. Ruhl, Dorothea W. Hanchar, and Jana S. Stewart Abstract The upper Illinois River Basin (UIRB) is square mile drainageCited by: The upper Illinois River Basin (UIRB) is square mile drainage area upstream from Ottawa, Illinois, on the Illinois River.

The UIRB is one of 13 studies that began in as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Quality Assessment program. A compilation of environmental data from Federal, State, and local agencies provides a description of the environmental setting. Get this from a library.

The Upper Mississippi River-Illinois Waterway (UMR-IWW) system contains natural resources of immense value to the nation. Stretching roughly miles from its headwaters at Lake Itasca in northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi is the world’s third-longest river (Robinson and Marks, ).

•The Illinois River valley (that includes the main river, backwater lakes, side channels, and floodplain) is a significant NATIONAL ecological resource. The Valparaiso Moraine forms part of the Saint Lawrence River Divide, bounding the Great Lakes Basin.

Water on one side of the moraine flows into Lake Michigan, through the Great Lakes, and eventually into the Atlantic Ocean via the Saint Lawrence River, while water on the other side flows into tributaries of the Mississippi River, which eventually flows into the Gulf of.

Contact each one to determine the scope of their monitoring activities. Since the s, dredge material has been removed from the Illinois River and placed along the main channel border in shallow depths to maintain a m deep main channel for commercial navigation.

Placement of this material changes the sediment composition from primarily silt/clay to primarily sand, and it buries pre-existing benthic invertebrates.

During Cited by: Basin efficiency (BE) depends on the level of recycling and reuse of return flows as well as on local water use efficiency.

Engineering measures such as conjunctive surface and ground water uses, storage regulation, and drainage treatment can increase BE through enhancing water recycling and : Ximing Cai.

Urban streams often are a major source of phosphorus (P) to rivers, primarily due to large inputs of sewage effluent. A good example of this is Chicago (Illinois, USA) area streams, which make up most of the flow of the upper Illinois River.

Water use. In the lower Illinois River Basin, 48 percent of the public- or municipal-supply water is drawn from ground-water sources and 52 percent from surface-water sources (fig. All private-supply water, usually for domestic use, is from ground water. Effects of land use, stream habitat, and water quality on biological communities of wadeable streams in the Illinois River Basin of Arkansas, and The Illinois River Basin includes an area of diverse land use in northwestern Arkansas.

Land-use data collected in indicate that most of the land in the basin is agricultural. SUMMARY Benthic-algal distributions in the upper Illinois River basin, IL, U.S.A., were examined in relation to geology, land use, water chemistry.

The balanced fish community indicates that the lower Illinois River is affected less from urban and industrial waste than the upper Illinois River. Kelly Warner has been a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey for over 20 years with expertise in water-quality, groundwater, and continuous nutrient monitoring.

The focus of her research is on nutrients and arsenic. Kelly is the Deputy Director for Science at the Central Midwest Water Science Center and coordinates research for the Center.

Illinois River. In addition to providing a useful tool for analyzing broad-scale restoration issues for the entire Illinois River basin, it is envisioned that the Illinois River BASINS-HSPF model will provide a framework for additional development and refinement of the model for more detailed modeling within each sub-watershed.
