The corporate authorities in all municipalities have
jurisdiction over all waters within or bordering upon the municipality, to
the extent of 3 miles beyond the corporate limits, but not beyond the
limits of the State. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to authorize a municipality to exercise zoning power or otherwise restrict the use of private property outside of the corporate limits of the municipality.
