The Illinois Nutrient Loss Reduction Strategy guides state efforts to improve water quality at home and downstream by reducing nitrogen and phosphorus levels in our lakes, streams, and rivers. The strategy lays out a comprehensive suite of best management practices for reducing nutrient loads from wastewater treatment plants and urban and agricultural runoff. Recommended activities target the state’s most critical watersheds and are based on the latest science and best-available technology. It also calls for more collaboration between state and federal agencies, cities, non-profits, and technical experts on issues such as water quality monitoring, funding, and outreach.

The strategy was developed by a policy working group led by the Illinois Water Resource Center, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, and the Illinois Department of Agriculture. Group members included representatives from state and federal agencies, agriculture, and non-profit organizations as well as scientists and wastewater treatment professionals.

Key Strategy Components

  1. Identifies priority watersheds for nutrient reduction efforts.
  2. Establishes the Nutrient Monitoring Council to coordinate water quality monitoring efforts by government agencies, universities, non-profits, and industry.
  3. Creates the Nutrient Science Advisory Committee to develop numeric nutrient criteria.
  4. Forms the Agricultural Water Quality Partnership Forum to oversee outreach and education efforts.
  5. Establishes the Urban Stormwater Working Group to coordinate and improve stormwater programs and education.
  6. Lays out strategies for improving collaboration among government, non-profits, and industry.
  7. Defines a process for regular review and revision.

Learn about the SWANCC Solid Waste Management Plan Process
Three regional stakeholder meetings held in September were attended by approximately 50 municipal officials, municipal staff, waste and recycling service providers, and members of the public. Each of the meetings included an introductory presentation by Shaw and SWANCC staff, followed by comments, questions, and discussion from the attendees. The principal input from the regional stakeholder meetings included the following:

  • Education services provided by SWANCC are a value, and continued outreach is needed to make residents aware of the benefits of recycling, what happens to materials collected for recycling, and how to access community and SWANCC programs.
  • There is interest in and/or a perceived need for:
    • Increasing recycling access at multi-family properties.
    • Increasing public access to recycling at individual businesses, in downtown areas and business districts, and in other public spaces.
    • Continuing to evaluate options for management of food scraps.
    • Identifying additional opportunities for the collection of household hazardous wastes.
    • Evaluating options for construction and demolition debris recycling.
    • Jointly procuring residential collection services.
    • Evaluating options to recycle textiles that are not suitable for donation or reuse.
  • Maintaining cost-effective service is an important factor for both members and service providers when exploring options for expanded or new programs.
Based on the input received from the Executive Committee, Board of Directors, and participants in the regional stakeholder meetings, Shaw incorporated these issues into the Draft Plan. This draft of the SWMP Update was reviewed by the Executive Committee at its January 22, 2014 meeting.
Based on the comments received at this meeting, the following SWMP Update schedule is proposed: 
  • February 27, 2014 - SWMP Update Available for Public Review SWANCC Staff will make the SWMP Update available on the Agency's website for review by the Board of Directors and the public.

Board Members will be asked to provide their comments regarding the Update. A public hearing will be held to allow the public to address the Board regarding the SWMP Update. The amount of time and format of the public's comments will be at the discretion of the Chairman of the Board of Directors. 
  • March 28, 2014 - 30-day Public Written Comment Period Closes
