Peoria Lakes Basin Alliance (PLBA)

What is the PLBA?

The Peoria Lakes Basin Alliance (PLBA) coordinates efforts to restore and preserve the ecological, recreational, cultural and economic attributes of the Peoria Lakes. It is composed of The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, the Heartland Water Resources Council, and The Nature Conservancy. The three agencies work together to ensure a coordinated and unified message for the restoration and revitalization of the Illinois River and Peoria Lakes. The Committee usually meets the second Tuesday of each month unless posted otherwise.
