Title:Plans for meeting water requirements in the Kaskaskia River Basin, 1970-2020
Author(s):Lonnquist, C.G.; Visocky, Adrian P.; Lonnquist, Carl G.
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Kaskaskia River Basin

Two alternative economical plans are indicated by this systems study of available groundwater and surface water sources to provide an adequate and economical water supply for each town in the Kaskaskia River Basin through the year 2020. Plan 1 includes 6 reservoirs (excludes Carlyle and Shelbyville Reservoirs) serving 58 towns, groundwater supply for 43 towns, and river water for 4 towns. Plan 2 includes 2 reservoirs (Shoal Creek and Carlyle Reservoirs) serving 63 towns, groundwater supply for 40 towns, and river water for 2 towns. Cost elements of a water supply system, for which appropriate cost functions are provided, were grouped under costs of raw water production, treatment, and transmission to the storage tank location. Minimum-cost water supply systems were obtained by optimizing the sum of these three costs. It was found that only 50 towns in the basin have adequate groundwater potential to meet the 2020 requirements and that groundwater supply is generally more economical than water supply from reservoirs.
