Vermillion River re-opens for recreational use

Posted by wlpo on July 2, 2015

The Vermillion River is back open after being closed due to flooding waters.

Bob Herbst of Vermillion River Rafting in Oglesby said the river re-opened to rafters at 8 o’clock Thursday morning. The river had been closed to recreational use since Monday due to rising river waters. A river rescue Sunday also led to the closure.

The Illinois River remains closed to boats.
