Publication Abstract

Water Chemistry of the Illinois Waterway Kothandaraman, Veerasamy, Robert A. Sinclair, and Ralph L. Evans, 1981  Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign, IL,  ISWS C-147    Full Text Available

Physical and chemical water quality characteristics were summarized for 28 locations situated at approximately 10-mile intervals from river mile 3.6 to river mile 270.6 in the Illinois Waterway. Also the waterway was segmented into seven reaches and the water chemistry data for each reach were subjected to statistical evaluation. Long-term average mineral and nutrient transports at three U.S. Geological Survey gaging stations on the Illinois Waterway were evaluated. Nitrate flux at these locations was found to vary from 8.88 to 13.83 lbs/ac/yr. Phosphorus flux varied from 1.20 to 2.96 lbs/ac/yr.
