Dredging -- Illinois River
Geographic Coverage:Illinois River
Abstract:Illinois Rivers 2020 to revive the Illinois River. It was a cooperative effort of the ISTC, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and other state agencies. Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the Illinois Scientific Surveys, the University of Illinois, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, numerous private companies, and a variety of federal, state, and local organizations. One project element was looking at how to remove sediment from the Illinois River in a cost effective and safe manner. Study teams investigated dredging and transport techniques, the quality of the sediment and a variety of potential uses. The removed sediment was used to restore habitats such as islands and may prove suitable for use as landscaping soil, especially at strip mines and abandoned industrial sites near navigation channels. This document is an archive of the web content of the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center’s (ISTC) Mud to Parks project, which expanded these efforts to locations beyond the Illinois River.
