Title:Coal and water resources for coal conversion in Illinois
Author(s):Smith, William H.; Stall, John B.
Subject(s):Coal -- Analysis
Water resources
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:In mid-1973, aware of the need for basic information about coal and water resources for use in siting coal conversion plants, the two Surveys embarked on a joint project to fill that need. In this publication all available information has been updated and put into a form convenient for assessing resources at sites that could be selected for coal conversion plants. We believe that the data base on which this study was founded permits a comprehensive interpretation of coal and water resources in Illinois. Results indicate that Illinois has large resources of both coal and water. In addition, many other conditions relevant to the siting of coal conversion plants are so favorable that Illinois could provide excellent sites for a number of such plants.
