Wetlands Geology Section
Wetlands provide economic, environmental, and aesthetic benefits for the people of Illinois, but these resources must be understood before they can be used wisely. The Wetlands Geology Section staff collect and analyze hydrogeologic and geochemical data from Illinois wetlands for use by citizens, businesses, and other governmental agencies in making informed decisions regarding wetland resources and their benefits. The Section provides expertise to other state agencies who encounter wetlands regularly while performing their respective missions, including the Illinois Department of Transportation and the Illinois Nature Preserves Commission.
