Welcome to Healthy Water Solutions.
We are a coalition of Illinois stakeholders working to bring our state's water infrastructure into the 21st century. We have a vision of clean rivers and lakes supporting sustainable economies and healthy ecosystems. There is much work to do, but with your help, we can make necessary improvements that will bring long-term benefits to the state's waters and people.
Right now, Asian carp and dozens of other invasive species are threatening the Great Lakes and Illinois' rivers. Healthy Water Solutions is working to stop the transfer of these invaders by restoring the natural separation between the Great Lakes and Mississippi River basins.
Separation is just one piece of a greater plan for improved water quality, flood control, recreation and transportation in Illinois.
Join our coalition and help us stop the carp, restore our rivers, and protect the lakes.
