SEE PRESS RELEASE BELOW THANKS Nathan Hill Watershed Coordinator Kishwaukee River Ecosystem Partnership (815) 621-9358 http://krep.bios.niu.edu Belvidere Dam Fish Passage Project Information Meeting April 26th , 6PM at Community Building in Belvidere . The public is invited to an information meeting on April 26th at the Community Building in Belvidere to hear the current status of the Belvidere Dam fish passage project. The agenda will include an open house, a presentation on the history of the dam, methods of fish passage, update on hydraulic studies and provide time for public comments. This event is being hosted by local conservation groups, local, state & federal agencies, and interested landowners. Currently the Dam obstructs fish migration to over 350 miles of stream habitat. In March 2006 the Belvidere Park District received grant funding from the IDNR Conservation 2000 Program to study fish passage. The study is examining three fish passage alternatives: dam removal, rock ramp, and a fish ladder. The Park District has partnered with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, US Fish and Wildlife Service, US Geological Survey, City of Belvidere, and other conservation groups on this project. The Community Building is located at 111 W. First Street in Belvidere, IL. Group and agency representatives will be available to answer questions during an open house from 6 - 7 PM with a formal presentation at 7PM followed by a public comment period till 9PM. If you cannot attend you may submit written comments or questions to the Belvidere Park District C/O Fish Passage Project P.O. Box 463 Belvidere IL 61008.
