Illinois State Water Survey Organization Restructure Addresses Current Issues

After a careful evaluation of the existing organization of the Illinois State Water Survey, it was determined a restructure was needed to enable the Survey to focus on critical research issues that are important to the state of Illinois. Because of funding and personnel issues over the years, our organizational structure had become unbalanced and obsolete. Our information and service groups had become smaller and fragmented. This new organization addresses both of these issues.

ISWS Org Chart

As shown in our new organization chart, there will be seven research sections and one data and information section. The research sections are:

  • Climate Science Section
  • Chemistry and Technology Section
  • Groundwater Science Section
  • Water Quality Section
  • Surface Water Hydrology and Hydraulics Section
  • Coordinated Hazard Assessment and Mapping Program (CHAMP)
  • National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP)

The data and information section will be known as the Water Resources Data and Information Section. It combines the information groups from the Groundwater and Watershed Science Centers and the WARM program from the Office of the Director. This will provide a well-integrated and long-lasting data and information group at the Water Survey.

This new structure will lead to focused research in priority areas and reduce the management responsibilities of senior managers so they can focus on research. This reorganization should also result in more research proposals, projects, and cooperation between sections.
