Abstract: The Du Page River area encompasses approximately 372 square miles (238,462 acres) in northeastern Illinois, mostly in Du Page and Will Counties, with small portions in Cook, Kane, Kendall, and Grundy Counties. The area is one of the most heavily urbanized in the state. It encompasses six subbasins along the Du Page River, ofwhich one (East Branch Du Page River) has been designated a "Resource Rich Area" because it contains significant natural community diversity. The Upper Du Page River Ecosystem Partnership was subsequently formed around this core area ofhigh quality ecological resources. This assessment is comprised offour volumes. In Volume I, Geology discusses the geology, soils, and minerals in the assessment area. Volume 2, Water Resources, discusses the surface and groundwater resources and Volume 3, Living Resources, describes the natural vegetation communities and the fauna ofthe region. Volume 4 contains three parts: Part I, Socio-Economic Profile, discusses the demographics, infrastructure, and economy ofthe area, focusing on Will and Du Page counties; Part II, Environmental Quality, discusses air and water quality, and hazardous and toxic waste generation and. management in the area; and Part III, Archaeological Resources, identifies and assesses the archaeological sites known in the area.
