Restoration & Sustainability

Nurturing and protecting the natural environment around us is crucial, especially amidst constant development in the Central Illinois area. Tri-County works with regional conservation-focused partners to plan for water supply and quality, erosion prevention, ecosystem restoration, and more. The scope of these plans includes urban areas, such as stormwater plans and feasibility studies; watershed regions, including Tenmile Creek and Farm Creek; and individual citizens, like the Landowner’s Guide to Prevent Erosion. As a whole, the purpose of these documents is to ensure the environmental sustainability of the Tri-County area and preserve the land for generations to come.
