Background
Water is a precious resource. But have you ever really asked yourself "What is water?" This may seem a simple question, but with the variety of roles water plays in our everyday lives, its uses seem endless. Each day in Illinois, water is used for drinking, bathing, and washing our dishes - but it is also used for navigation, in support of aquatic habitats and wildlife, in industry, and as a source of power. Illinois is a water-rich state, and water supplies vary widely for each use. The Illinois State Water Survey has answered some basic questions about water supply issues, and the answers are here on this Web site. You can browse the list of questions, or search the list of questions.

If you have additional information that you would like us to consider including, or you have comments or questions, please contact us.
