Geographic Coverage: Illinois
Abstract: The Sugar-Pecatonica Area Assessment encompasses approximately 796.3 square miles (509,675 acres) in north central Illinois along the Wisconsin/Illinois border. The area includes virtually all of Stephenson County, the northwestern half of Winnebago County, and very small portions of Carroll, Jo Daviess, and Ogle counties. There are 21 subbasins along the Sugar and Pecatonica rivers, of which one has been designated a "Resource Rich Area" because it contains significant natural community diversity. The Sugar-Pecatonica Rivers Ecosystem Partnership was subsequently formed around this core area of high quality ecological resources. This assessment is comprised of five 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, focusing on the two counties with the greatest amount of land in the area -Stephenson and Winnebago; 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. Volume 5, Early Accounts of the Ecology of the Sugar-Pecatonica Area, describes the ecology of the area as recorded by historical writings of explorers, pioneers, early visitors and early historians.
