The Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club set out to determine the impact of this decision upon Illinois’ wetlands; particularly wetlands in the northeastern part of Illinois; which according to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, has the highest number of isolated wetlands in the State. The Chicago District includes the six counties in northeastern Illinois: Lake, McHenry, Kane, DuPage, Cook and Will counties, corresponding to the footprint of greater metropolitan Chicago. It is also the region of the state, according to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, with the most isolated wetlands. Research shows that Wetlands are worth saving because of their benefits to both humans and wildlife.
