This document was the first of its kind for the Illinois EPA and one of the first of its kind for an Illinois state agency. It is intended to provide a more reader-friendly and less technical overview of IEPA activities for all the citizens of Illinois. It evolved from and replaces the Annual Environmental Conditions Report we issued in previous years.
In previous years, the Illinois EPA prepared and distributed an annual environmental conditions report to help focus attention on environmental results. The Agency's commitment to preparing the Annual Environmental Conditions Report is discussed in the Environmental Performance Agreement between the Illinois EPA and Region V of the U.S. EPA.
The Agency welcomes comments and suggestions on the goals and indicators outlined in these web pages as well as the complete environmental conditions report and seeks a continuing dialogue with the public and interest groups that have a stake in environmental protection. Copies of the complete Annual Environmental Conditions Report are available from the Illinois EPA.
