Illinois Waters Bibliography: Surface Waters of Illinois Counties (1968-75)

A directory of digitized reports on Illinois waters

Reports on the surface waters of the Illinois counties were published by the Illinois Department of Conservation, Division of Fisheries between 1968 and 1975. They summarized the available data on the surface waters (e.g., rivers, lakes, and reservoirs), particularly with respect to their recreational value. The goal was to provide information to facilitate allocation of water use among competing needs, such as agriculture, industry, and municipal water supplies. In addition to inventories of surface water features, the reports covered water quality and pollution concerns, wetlands, fisheries and other recreational uses, as well as basic information on the geology, soils, physiography, drainage, and climate of the county. The digital collection in Illinois Harvest includes most of the reports issued. Digitization was performed by the University Library's Digital Content Creation unit.
