Fox River Watershed Investigation

Collecting water samples

In consultation with the Fox River Study Group, the Illinois State Water Survey (ISWS) has proposed a multi-phase water quality study of the Fox River watershed from Stratton Dam to the Illinois River confluence. The ultimate objective of the full study is to identify significant watershed issues and implement a watershed scale plan including data collection, model development, and monitoring. The findings of this research will provide guidance for public and private planners and decision-makers. The FSRG outreach statement(PDF format) describes their work plan and funding. [more]
