Illinois Water Resources Utilizing a Watershed Approach

This report describes the framework for prioritizing program activities utilizing a Targeted Watershed Approach (TWA). The Illinois EPA is committed to directing available resources within Bureau of Water programs to watersheds where the greatest environmental benefit can be realized. To the extent that flexibility is available in our mandated and delegated responsibilities under the federal Clean Water Act (CWA), Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), and state statutes, the Illinois EPA targets those programs and watersheds that have the greatest impact on human health issues and ecosystem protection. Therefore, watersheds are targeted for specific action while using the balance of available programmatic resources to maintain a statewide baseline program.
