USACE on dam removals on the Fox River

After more than twenty years of research, planning, and advocacy, we are at a critical juncture for the health and future of the Fox River. The Army Corps of Engineers ran a series of three public meetings the week of Sept. 18, 2023, to discuss the findings of their Tentatively Selected Plan, which recommends nine (9) dam removals along the Fox River to restore habitat, improve water quality, and ensure the health of the river in perpetuity. The TSP recommends the removal of dams in Carpentersville, Elgin, South Elgin, St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, North Aurora, Aurora, and Montgomery. 

The Fox River Study Group prepared the following information for the meetings, and it will be useful as the discussions continue within the various communities that have these dams under consideration for removal.
