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. A Dredge Packet is made available for your use as all eligible.
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.
Major Projects: The Fox Waterway Agency has engineered and performed massive restoration projects using GeoTube technology that restores and secures shorelines from erosion and extinction, some of these include: Pape Island, Ackerman, Chain O’Lakes State Park & Coopers Farm. Grass Island was a massive success and has contributed to the preservation and reemerging presence of species of natural and wildlife that are now coming back to our lakes and lands to make their homes..
