As one of four demonstration counties in Illinois, Jackson County was analyzed for estimated soil loss in 54 watershed segments using the universal soil loss equation. Soil losses above tolerance were reported for 30 of these watersheds. Watershed segments which gave soil loss estimates more than 11 tons/acre/year were assigned first priority for concentration of soil conservation measures. Estimated soil loss, average tolerance, percentages of land use, slope data, and composite K and C factors are given for each watershed segment.
