How Much Do You Really Know About IL Rivers and Streams?

Recommended Posts

This is the kind of stuff one can find when digging for C2000 grant projects that have taken place over the years. Chances are, you'll find a project that has taken place not far from you.


As the saying goes..."The More You Know...."


Title: Evaluation of the South Batavia Dam Removal on the Fox River, Illinois

Description: This project will assess effects of complete removal of the South Batavia dam on the Fox River. Data collected will add to data collected during pre- (2002–2003) and partial-removal (2003–2005) phases, enabling an assessment of complete removal effects on physical/chemical habitat, invertebrate and fish assemblages and fish movements. This additional data is crucial to understanding the effects of dam removal on Illinois rivers.
