The 2000 Illinois Water Quality Report was prepared by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA) to satisfy reporting requirements in Section 305(b) of the Federal Clean Water Act (CWA). This report provides an assessment of the water quality conditions of the state's surface and groundwater resources utilizing data collected through September 1998. Since 1990, the Illinois EPA has also reproduced a summary of this comprehensive report for general distribution to the public. In addition to characterizing statewide water quality conditions, the summary report is supplemented with fact sheets addressing general water quality conditions at a watershed level.
