Illinois River Watershed Partnership

One component of our Northwest Arkansas quality of life strategy is focused on water quality.  The Illinois River is a valuable natural resource that originates in Arkansas and flows into Oklahoma where it is designated as a Scenic River. Our grantee, Illinois River Watershed Partnership, is a diverse group who directly affect the water quality of the river.

This Partnership strives to improve the water quality of the Illinois River through personal endeavors, and through the education, the encouragement and the positive reinforcement of fellow Illinois River Watershed residents.

We work with Illinois River Watershed Partnership on a variety of projects, one of which was a rain garden in Rogers, Arkansas, in 2010:
