Title:  

The 1980-1981 drought in Illinois: causes, dimensions, and impacts

 
 Volume/Number:  1982  
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois State Water Survey 
 Description:  This report addresses the 1980-1981 drought in Illinois. This 15-month drought, which began in February 1980 and was centered in the southern portions of the state, was not one of the extreme droughts of record. However, its importance derives from the fact that it is the most severe drought since those of the early 1950s. As such, the 1980-1981 drought potentially reflects a new set (or new types) of impacts on the states water resources due to many technological, hydrological, and institutional changes since the 1950s.As noted above, droughts are a basic and important feature of the climate and water resources of Illinois. The interesting near absence of droughts in the state between 1955 and 1976 makes the drought of 1980-1981 of great interest, although it was not extremely severe.

Title:  

The 1988-1989 drought in Illinois: causes, dimensions, and impacts

 
 Volume/Number:  1992  
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois State Water Survey 
 Description:  The 1988-1989 drought was one of the most disastrous droughts in the history of the state. Hydrologic, meteorological, and climatological aspects of the 1988-1989 drought in Illinois are addressed. The drought is evaluated in terms of recipitation, streamflow, lakes and reservoirs, and ground-water resources of the state. The meteorological conditions that produced the drought also are addressed. Impacts and problems resulting from the drought are discussed along with various actions taken to ameliorate the problems. Although the primary goal of the study was to quantify the drought, primarily in a physical sense, an important secondary goal was to assess the impacts and the actions employed in order to derive information needed in future planning and handling of Illinois droughts. The report thus ends with a set of recommendations for coping with future droughts.

Title:  

The 1993 flood on the Mississippi River in Illinois

 
 Volume/Number:  1994  
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois State Water Survey 
 Description:  This report on the 1993 flood on the Mississippi River in Illinois and on the lower reaches of the Illinois River was prepared by the Illinois State Water Survey with assistance from the Illinois Department of Transportation/Division of Water Resources and the Illinois Natural History Survey. The report begins with a brief description of the physical setting of the Upper Mississippi River System, including historical facts on climate, precipitation, hydrology, and floods. The 1993 flood is discussed with regard to precipitation, soil moisture, stages, flows, levee breaches, and discharge through levee breaches. Also discussed are impacts of the flood on social, economic, hydraulic and hydrologic, and environmental aspects of the river and its residents. Impacts on water quality, the environment, and public water supplies, including the beneficial and detrimental aspects of the flood, also are included. The lessons learned from this flood focus on the performance of the levees, governmental responses, the effects of flood fighting, change in stages due to levee breaches, flood modeling, and the lack of information dissemination to the public on the technical aspects of the flood. These lessons point out information gaps and the need for research in the areas of hydraulics and hydrology, meteorology, sediment transport and sedimentation, surface and groundwater interactions, water quality, and levees. The report presents a comprehensive summary of the 1993 flood as far as climate, hydrology, and hydraulics are concerned.

Title:  

The 2005 Illinois drought.

 
 Volume/Number:  2006  
 Issuing Agency:  Illinois State Water Survey 
 Description:  Dry conditions in 2005 reached a historic level of severity in some parts of Illinois and ranked as one of the three most severe droughts in Illinois in 112 years of record. The timing of the dryness during the spring and summer, when water demand and use are high, ensured substantial impacts on agriculture and other sectors. The drought also had several unusual characteristics. The drought area was long and narrow, extending from south Texas to the Great Lakes, but within the Midwest, the drought had relatively minor impacts on states other than Illinois. A record number of remnants of hurricanes and tropical storms passed through Illinois during July, August, and September, substantially ameliorating drought conditions in portions of central and southern Illinois. Crop yields were surprisingly high in parts of the state, perhaps providing evidence of increased drought resistance in modern varieties and the benefits of timely rains.
