Boating On The Illinois River Not Suggested

Posted by wlpo on May 22, 2009

Memorial Day plans include boating or fishing?

Kevin Eubanks with the Army Corps of Engineers at Starved Rock says the Illinois River is open to recreational activity but he says it’s not a good idea.  Eubanks says the river is still extremely high and large trees have been seen floating down the river which could do heavy damage to boats. 

The Illinois is closed to recreation downriver from Chillicothe.
