Abstract : The objective of this study is to evaluate the interaction of water quality degradation, basin land-use, and flood control alternatives in Richland Creek, IL. The extent of water quality degradation is evaluated for causes of existing pollution and the potential occurrence of future detrimental effects. Land use patterns in the basin are analyzed to determine water quality impacts and the feasibility of various flood control alternatives. The interaction of these three factors, water quality, land-use, and flood control alternatives are used to formulate recommendations. (Author)
