Abstract
The upper Embarras River Basin (UERB) is defined as a drainage area upstream of roughly the boundary of Coles and Cumberland Counties. It covers about 696 square miles in Champaign, Douglas, Coles, Edgar, and Cumberland Counties. The outlet of this watershed is currently under investigation as a possible site for a flood control reservoir. The major problem is periodic inundation in the downstream area. The runoff problem was studied by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. This report studies the economic aspects of erosion and sedimentation in this typical watershed located in the flat, production farmland of central Illinois.
