Couldn't view that one w/out signing up tot trib. Tried to post a different one but it didn't want to post. Hopefully no one closes anything and people stop being so trashy!

ISA Officer's have been aware of this issue for some time.  We had hoped the issue would not gain traction and die on its own but since the State is apparently reviewing the issue we will prepare a formal response strongly objecting to same.  The source of the problem appears to be the tubing company and its customers polluting the stream and this is where the State's focus should be directed.

In the meantime I urge all our members to sign the petition objecting to the landowner's proposal.

Signed. But hoping the tubing business, tiki hut drink vendors, etc. leave Plainfield, etc. and the Dupe goes back to being a quiet little river.

Also, the DNR officers have a list of IL “navigable waterways” deemed for public use. They often refer to this list as the be-all, end-all in trespassing issues. The Dupe, among many other small local rivers we love to fish, is not on that list.

I got this directly from a conservation police officer when inquiring about Indian Creek (private).

Here is update on petition drive with now over 10,000 signatures:

PETITION UPDATE

10,000

 

Huge milestone today. We reached 10,000 signatures in 20 days. That’s pretty amazing. The fight isn’t over, but we are making great progress. We simply want the IDNR to acknowledge that the river is navigable and available for the public to use. Isn’t that why they already have dozen of “Public” launches all along the River? Keep on sharing and thank you so much for your support. ♥️� � � � � � �...
