If you remember Bob Rung's slide presentation, he explained that a flood won't necessarily awsh away the plants. They did a planting several years back (I think on the Dupage). A week later it was clobbered with a flood. To everyones suprise, the plants survived and flourished.

I did not attend this years planting, however in the past I remember everyone doing an exceptional job planting, building little current breaks and piling rocks onto the plants to really anchor them. I'm sure that happened again this year. Also remember the plants fold over in the current by nature.

The flooding probably didn't help, but it might not necessarily destroyed everyones work either.

I made a quick scan today of the areas that we planted upstream of VPP. Here are the results. I'd say, with a very unscientific and uneducated guess, that at least 75% made it through the flood. Looks to me that the water was up a good 4-5' at it's peak! :o

 

 

 

The big mass of green in the 3rd pic is a newly broken branch that found it's resting place near the water willows to the left. No fish were caught since I only had my camera with me. There was an abundance of minnows/fry hiding in the willows.
