Abstract: The Shawnee Area is roughly defined as that portion of the Shawnee Hills located in Hardin and Pope counties and the eastern third of Johnson County, as well as small portions of Massac, Saline, and Gallatin counties. The 623-square-mile-area includes the Illinois watersheds that drain into the reach of the Ohio River between its confluence with the Saline River (near Saline Landing, IL) and Hamletsburg, IL, and the watersheds of two tributaries that drain into the Saline River: the Little Saline River and Rock Creek. It falls within the physiographic region called the Shawnee Hills Section. While most of the land is rugged hills, broad bottomlands are located along Bay Creek and, to a lesser extent, along the Ohio River. 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 two parts: Part I, Socio-Economic Profile, discusses the demographics, infrastructure, and economy of the area; and Part II, Environmental Quality, discusses air and water quality, and hazardous and toxic waste generation and management in the area.
