About The Illinois State Water Survey

Watershed Science

The mission of the Water Survey's Watershed Science Section is to generate historical and spatial scientific data, investigate and understand watershed processes, and to provide high quality scientific and engineering analyses to policymakers, planners, and resource managers in the state of Illinois and beyond so that they can develop and implement sustainable watershed programs based on the best scientific and engineering analyses possible. 

The Watershed Science team is led by Dr. Momcilo Markus.
