The scope of this document is generally limited to Illinois com¬mon and statutory drainage law. Some federal laws are discussed where they have a significant impact on drainage issues in Illinois. Likewise, a small number of case precedents from outside of Illinois are discussed where they may have an impact on drainage issues in Illinois.
