Abstract:The La Moine River Assessment Area is defined by the watershed of the La Moine River, along with an additional area bordering on the west side of the Illinois River that lies between the Spoon River watershed and the La Moine watershed. The La Moine area covers approximately 1,855 square miles, falling within portions of eight counties: Adams, Brown, Fulton, Hancock, Henderson, McDonough, Schuyler, and Warren. The La Moine is the sixth largest tributary to the Illinois River and has a drainage area of 1,350 square miles and a total length of 126 miles. The basin falls within the physiographic division called the Galesburg Till Plain. The present topography is characterized by rolling upland prairies, interspaced by wellestablished streams that have eroded steep-walled valleys that are as much as 50 to 150 feet below the general level of the adjacent uplands. This assessment is comprised of four volumes. In Volume 1, 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 of the region. Volume 4 contains three parts: Part I, Socio-Economic Profile, discusses the demographics, infrastructure, and economy of the area; 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.
