319 Tracking Projects

Nonpoint source (NPS) pollution prevention and mitigation activities are essential to improving water quality in the region's rivers and streams. Behind this effort, Illinois EPA has been designated to receive federal funds through Section 319 (h) of the Clean Water Act to help implement Illinois' Nonpoint Source Management Program (Program). The purpose of the Program is to work cooperatively with local units of government and other organizations toward the goal of protecting the quality of Illinois' waters by controlling NPS pollution. The Program supports several types of activities including implementation of cost-effective corrective and preventive best management practices (BMPs) on a watershed scale; implementation of new and innovative best management practices; NPS pollution control information, education and outreach programs; NPS pollution control research and monitoring projects; and development of watershed-based plans.

For more than eleven years, CMAP and its predecessor, the Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission, have assisted numerous municipalities, agencies, and local organizations in implementing projects that are designed to reduce NPS pollution to the region's rivers, streams, lakes and wetlands through Section 319(h) of the Clean Water Act. This assistance has typically included grant application development as well as project coordination, administration, and technical review of design plans, BMP installations, and education and outreach products.

Since 2004, CMAP collectively managed projects with a total project budget valued at $7,926,480, with Illinois EPA awarding up to $2,717,063 in grant funding and the local sponsors providing at least $3,398,406 in matching funds and in-kind services.  For more information including project overviews, water quality benefits associated with each project, project photos, and contact information, use the on-page navigation to view projects by county.

A project location map may be found here.

To obtain more information about the program please visit Illinois EPA's website.

This is an innovative and encouraging time for water quality management in the State of Illinois and CMAP looks forward to continuing its involvement in helping to restore the quality of our region's waters.
