Dams, Clams, and the Fox River
March 10 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Does our society have a moral obligation to return the Fox River to the health the first
European settlers found when they arrived in the Fox River Valley?
Professional Engineer and Friends of the Fox River Board of Director Art Malm, provides a brief history of the Fox River dams, their importance to the early development of the Fox River Valley, and the services they provide today. He will also discuss the negative impact of the dams on the Fox ecosystem, its water quality and the habitats affected by the dams. Art vividly illustrates what dam removal may look like based upon experiences where dams have been removed from
rivers in Illinois similar to the Fox.
