  • Protect groundwater resources.
  • Conserve and restore wetlands, which purify water and provide habitat for birds, fish, and numerous other animals.
  • Implement farm conservation practices that keep soil in the fields and out of the waterways.

Along with technical assistance the district will help you with developing conservation planning and implementing conservation practices with help from the state and federal agencies.  Check out state and federal funding and technical assistance programs in Illinois
