We’re Working Hard to Improve Our Waterways
Dredging: It is estimated that as much as 100,000 cubic yards of new sedimentation occurs in our Fox River and Chain O’Lakes system every year through the Fox River, shoreline erosion and by our entire watershed. It is imperative that we work to remove at least this much sediment out of our system each year. We can do this by dredging all of our lakes, main navigational channels, channel mouths and even homeowner channels.
Debris: We work to remove debris from our waterway to maintain navigable channels, rivers and waterways. This includes any obstructions within our navigable waterways that may create a dangerous or emergency situation.
