The Illinois Coastal Nonpoint Pollution Control Program (CNPCP) is being developed by the IDNR Coastal Management Program in partnership with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. The goal of the program is to reduce pollutants that may impact Lake Michigan and the waters within the Illinois Coastal Zone. The creation of this program is in compliance with Section 6217 of the Coastal Zone Act Reauthorization Amendments of 1990.
The Coastal Management Program accepted public comments on the proposed plan through July 30, 2014.
The final CNPCP document is available for public view and was submitted to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the US Environmental Protection Agency on July 31, 2014.
