Upper Des Plaines River Inundation
                     
IDNR Office of Water Resources maps the floodplain produced by the National Weather Service river gauge stage by utilizing existing hydraulic model profiles and IDNR topographic elevation models based on LiDAR bare earth. Six river gauges are present for the Upper Des Plaines River: Riverside, River Forest, Des Plaines, Lincolnshire, Gurnee, and Russell. Inundation libraries based on stage readings at each gauge have been created and shown within the mapped area for each gauge.
