River Deal Huge For Area Rafting Company

Posted by wlpo on November 29, 2010

There may be no one happier to hear about the reopening of the Vermilion River in Oglesby than Bob Herbst.

 Herbst owns Vermilion River Rafting in Oglesby which offers rafting and kayaking on the Vermilion River.  With Buzzi Unicem’s stretch of the river closed this year, Herbst says they did business with about 15 hundred people.  Before the river was closed to recreation, they did business with around 35 hundred.

Herbst says they probably would’ve had to close if the river was closed past next year.
