Recent Dam Removal Articles

Recommended Posts

Following up on our Blowout Speaker, Art Malm's talk at the Blowout, below are two recent newspaper articles on the subject from Dale Bowman at Sun Times and Brenda Schory at Kane County Chronicle.  Both articles point to some encouraging news.  Hopefully the 20 million allocated by the State in this year's budget for Dam Removal will remain intact.

Looks like North Aurora dam on the Fox will be coming down soon..  If Montgomery dam is also removed there would be unobstructed float from Batavia to Yorkville.  Thanks for sending me the article Mark Lutz.
