This legislation establishes river basin commissions, for the Kankakee, Maumee, St. Joseph, and Upper Wabash Rivers. The commissions facilitate and foster cooperative planning and coordinated management of the respective river basin's water and related land resources. They're charged with developing positions on major water resource issues and to serve as an advocate of the respective river basin's interests before Congress and federal, state, and local governmental agencies. Each commission has developed plans to improve water quality in the basin.

Each commission has specific goals and charges, which can be reviewed on their respective websites and in the legislative chapter for each commission.
