Kankakee River Dams


Recommended Posts

I've seen those signs also, didn't investigate tho. Mixed feelings on that one. 

Is there an asian carp presence below the dam? If so is the dam helping to keep them from moving upstream?

I think they are already in there.  For whatever reason have not spread.  Could be wrong about that.  Might be taking the dams down due to safety.

To be honest, the Mill Race is no barrier to invasive species regardless. Especially since the "broken dam" has almost completely tumbled. During high water, they would hardly need to jump over the main dam. What will be interesting to see is who is going to pay for removal or modification. Seeing discussions on Facebook regarding this issue, even the local majority who want it gone are not willing to pay for it.
