WATER-QUALITY ASSESSMENT OF THE ILLINOIS RIVER BASIN, ARKANSAS By J. Terry, E. Morris, J. Petersen, and M. Darling U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY Water-Resources Investigations Report Prepared in cooperation with ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF POLLUTION CONTROL AND ECOLOGY Little Rock, Arkansas Author: J.E.

Terry, E.E. Morris, Jim C. Petersen, M.E. Darling. Get this from a library. Water-quality assessment of the Illinois River Basin, Arkansas. [J E Terry; Arkansas. Department of Pollution Control and Ecology.; Geological Survey (U.S.);]. A water-quality assessment was made of Illinois River, Muddy Fork, Spring Creek, and Osage Creek in northwest Arkansas.

Data were collected to calibrate and verify steady-state digital, stream, water-quality models. The models were then used to simulate changes in instream diel-minimum dissolved-oxygen resulting from changes in nutrient loading.

The Illinois River is a mile-long ( km) tributary of the Arkansas River in the U.S. states of Arkansas and dr-peshev.com Osage Indians named it Ne-eng-wah-kon-dah, which translates as "Medicine Stone River."The state of Oklahoma has designated its portion as a Scenic River.

The Illinois River is a significant location in the Wilson Rawls novel, Where the Red Fern Grows⁃ coordinates: 35°51′08″N 94°17′23″W /.

The lower Illinois River Basin (LIRB) encompasses 18, square miles of central and western Illinois. Historical and recent information from Federal, State, and local agencies describing the physiography, population, land use, soils, climate, geology, streamflow, habitat, ground water, water use, and aquatic biology is summarized to describe the environmental setting of the LIRB.

Abstract. This report contains the major findings of a – assessment of water quality in the upper Illinois River Basin. It is one of a series of reports by the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Program that present major findings in 51 major.

Partners and Funding The water quality improvement in the Illinois River is the result of partnerships between local.

Water quality degradation in the Illinois River Watershed (IRW) has been linked to excess nutrients, primarily phosphorus (P). A mass balance study was performed on the IRW in Oklahoma and Arkansas to quantify the magnitude of P entering the watershed between the closure of Lake Tenkiller’s dam in Cited by: 4.

Stronger leadership from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is needed to address these problems.The Little Arkansas River Basin has several segments listed on the (d) list for atrazine water quality impairments.

The segments not listed on the (d) list within the watershed all have samples that have exceeded the water quality criteria for Drinking Water Supply and Chronic Aquatic Life, with the exception of Station on.It appears that the EPA will leave development of TMDLs for the Illinois River and Tenkiller Lake up to the states which have failed to act for decades.

Will this lead to years of further studies, meetings, and delays of enforcing Oklahoma's water quality standards, namely .
