Protecting our environment

This page contains information about TCRPC’s environmental planning efforts

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.
