Rapidly rising Vermillion River shut off to recreational boating

Posted by wlpo on June 29, 2015

The Vermillion River is below flood stage but it’s gone up enough in a short time to take safety measures.

Conservation Police Sgt. Hank Frazier says the river through the entire stretch of La Salle County is closed to boats until further notice. Frazier says the river level more than doubled over the weekend.

A river rescue Sunday on the river also led to the closure according to Frazier.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
