Illinois River At Beardstown, Illinois

Grants Will Allow Beardstown Marina To Be Dredged........

 

The City of Beardstown, Illinois was recently awarded two grants that will allow the city to complete a dredging project at their marina. 

 

The Beardstown board approved a $125,000 grant from State Representative Norine Hammond as well as a $50,000 grant from State Senator Jil Tracy that is intended to fund the Beardstown Marina dredging.

 

Beardstown Mayor Leslie Harris says that dredging the marina is crucial, as it allows access to the Illinois and Sangamon Rivers.......

Mississippi River In Monroe County, Illinois

Officials Slow Effort To Install Wind Turbines Along The River........

 

On Monday, Monroe County officials repealed an ordinance that would have allowed the construction of wind farms.  The motion puts the brakes on the proposed plan for installing 50 wind turbines along the Mississippi River.

 

The Monroe County Board of Commissioners voted to suspend the Wind Energy Conversion Ordinance after residents raised safety concerns about the Southern Illinois Wind project.

 

Joe Koppeis, the developer of the wind farm has been planning the $220 million wind farm located on the bluffs between Valmeyer and Fults for about 10 years.  However, he did not apply for a special use permit.

 

The board will not be accepting special use permit applications for about 18 months while the commissioners revise the ordinance.........

Please Join Us to Talk
About Flood, Sediment, and Drought Management
On the Upper Mississippi River

 

 We invite you to the two remaining Saturday events along the Upper Mississippi River this summer. These gatherings will be different from many other public meetings. The people who come to these events will set the agenda and lead the discussions. There will not be presentations by “experts.”

Conversations will focus on reducing the risks of flooding, maintaining the navigation channel, managing river sediment, and preparing for a future long term drought. Share the impacts to you, your neighbors, and your community, and talk about how we can all work together better to address these issues.

We are hosting these events for three reasons:
1. To bring together local residents and local leaders to talk with each other about how local actions can address important river issues, such as flooding, channel maintenance, sediment management, and long term drought

2. To learn what local residents and local leaders think needs to be done to address important issues the river poses to local communities

3. To be able to incorporate local ideas and local actions into a future regional resilience plan for the river

 

Locations and Times for the Events
August 24 in Godfrey, Illinois at the Lewis and Clark Community College
September 7 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri at the Southeast Missouri State University

Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. The events will begin at 9 a.m. and end no later than 4 p.m. Lunches will be provided at no cost. Attached are maps to the specific location and directions for each location.

Thank you to those who participated in the Hannibal and Muscatine events! You each brought a unique perspective and willingness to listen and understand others’ viewpoints. We certainly gained valuable awareness and appreciation for your experiences and insights. Session notes will be available on UMRBA’s website: http://umrba.org/umrs-floodplain-resilience-plan.htm.

The Hosts
We are a team of river-oriented people from the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association (UMRBA), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the five states on the Upper Mississippi River (Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wisconsin).

Unable to Attend? Please provide us your input online!
We would appreciate your input through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers online tool linked here: https://www.mvr.usace.army.mil/About/Offices/Programs-and-Project-Management/UMR-F-S-D-Management/

Colonel Eric T. Olson, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, encourages everyone to plan for a safe 2019 Labor Day weekend. It's everyone's responsibility to operate both vehicles and vessels safely and observe all Missouri laws. Incorporating safety into your weekend plan--choosing your route, making sure your equipment is in good working condition, being aware of and following Missouri's traffic and boating laws, driving your vehicle or vessel courteously, wearing a seat belt or a life jacket--helps ensure a safer Labor Day weekend for everyone.

In Missouri, 11 people died and 470 were injured in 1,048 traffic crashes over the 2018 Labor Day holiday. That means one person was killed or injured every 9.7 minutes. Of that total, troopers worked 257 traffic crashes, which included 119 injuries and seven of the fatalities over the 2018 Labor Day holiday. Troopers arrested 113 people for driving while intoxicated during last year’s holiday weekend.

The 2019 counting period for the Labor Day holiday will be from 6 p.m., Friday, August 30, through 11:59 p.m., Monday, September 2, 2019.

The Highway Patrol will be participating in Operation C.A.R.E. (Crash Awareness & Reduction Effort) over the Labor Day holiday weekend. Speed, inattention, and impaired driving are leading causes of traffic crashes. Thus, all available troopers will be patrolling Missouri’s roadways enforcing Missouri’s speed limit, seat belt, and impaired driving laws, in addition to being available to assist motorists.

The only 100 percent survivable traffic crash is the one that never happens. Make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained in a seat belt or child restraint. Every day as we travel on Missouri’s roadways, we trust that every driver on the road is going to obey the speed limit, pay attention, and drive sober. “Don’t Violate The Trust.”


The Labor Day holiday is also a busy boating weekend. In 2018, there were seven boating crashes which included three injuries, but no fatalities. There were no drownings over last year's Labor Day holiday. Troopers arrested 15 people for boating while intoxicated during last year's counting period. All available marine enforcement troopers will be working to make our waterways safer during the holiday weekend. Missouri’s boaters are asked to do their part by remaining alert for other boats and swimmers, and being courteous on the water. With more boats on the water, it is even more important to pay attention when operating a vessel. Remember: Smaller vessels should yield right-of-way to larger vessels.

Never operate a vessel while you are impaired. Alcohol consumption slows reaction time. Avoid overloading your boat with too many passengers and pay close attention to the boats around you. Check your vessel’s navigation lights before heading out at night, be sure to have spare bulbs on board, and observe Missouri's nighttime speed limit of 30 mph on the water. Causing harm to another person or their property with an excessive boat wake may subject you to enforcement action or civil liability. Treat other boaters and property owners as you want to be treated.

Watercraft operators must consider the effect their actions have on others: Share the waterway and use common sense, good judgment, and courtesy to ensure the safety of all. Life jackets save lives. Wear It!!

“I urge everyone to plan a safe 2019 Labor Day holiday,” said Col. Olson. “Use a seat belt in a vehicle or a life jacket when you're on or near the water. No matter what you are operating--a vehicle or a vessel--be a courteous driver and obey all applicable laws."

The public is encouraged to call the Patrol's Emergency Report Line (800) 525-5555 or *55 on your cellular phone if they witness criminal activity or experience an emergency. These emergency numbers are operational for both highway and water emergencies. If your celebration includes alcohol, designate someone else to drive whether you are in your boat or your car. Please don't become a statistic.

Asian Carp Update

Study:  Asian Carp Bigger Threat To Great Lakes........

 

Officials are saying that the Asian carp problem in Illinois could be a bigger issue for the Great Lakes than originally believed. 

 

A recent study conducted by the University of Michigan indicates that the Asian carp could cross Lake Michigan and infest other inland waterways as well as the other Great Lakes.

 

It was originally believed that Lake Michigan was too big, too deep and too devoid of food for the Asian carp to swim across........

Mississippi River At Caruthersville, Missouri

Designs For A New Floodwall Are Proceeding........

 

Engineers are currently developing plans for a new flood wall at Caruthersville, Missouri, which would replace the existing 87 year old barrier.

 

According to an estimate from the chief engineer on the project, the new flood wall would cost $20 million, but it would be completely funded by the federal government.

 

Charles Davis with the St. Francis Levee District of Missouri says that Caruthersville's flood wall protects thousands of people in low-lying communities across Arkansas and the Missouri Bootheel.........

Flood, Sediment and Drought Management Open Session

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District and

Upper Mississippi River Basin Association

 

Details

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association is hosting six Saturday events along the Upper Mississippi River this summer. These gatherings will be different from many other public meetings. Those attending these events will set the agenda and lead the discussions.

Conversations will focus on reducing the risks of flooding, maintaining the navigation channel, managing river sediment and preparing for a future long term drought. Share the impacts to you, your neighbors, and your community and talk about how we can all work together better to address these issues.

We are hosting these events for three reasons:

1.) To bring together local residents and local leaders to talk with each other about how local actions can address important river issues, such as flooding, channel maintenance, sediment management and long term drought.

2.) To learn what local residents and local leaders think needs to be done to address important issues the river poses to local communities.

3.) To be able to incorporate local ideas and local actions into a future regional resilience plan for the river.

For more info visit: https://www.mvr.usace.army.mil/About/Offices/Programs-and-Project-Management/UMR-F-S-D-Management/

Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. for each event.

Discussions will run from 9 a.m. and end no later than 4 p.m.

Lunches will be provided at no cost.

The Great Lakes

Shipwreck Time Capsule Located Under The Great Lakes........

 

The Department of Natural History is focusing on the historic treasures located under the waters of the Great Lakes, and explaining why shipwrecks are so well preserved.

 

It is estimated that some 6,000 vessels had been lost on the Greta Lakes.  The cold freshwater has a unique way of preserving Michigan's maritime history.

 

Ron Bloomfield with the Michigan Underwater Preserve Council stated that the greatest intact collection of wooden shipwrecks in the world are preserved in the Great Lakes, and the largest concentration of those shipwrecks are located within Michigan's waters........

Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?" That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.” ― Hermann Hesse sleep.

All Company's that have donated towards the event will remain the same. If anyone is interested in their Company joining for next year please reach out to me. All Tshirts sales will remain the same and Store will open up next year to purchase Tshirts. If you are interested in a Refund please always reach out if not your order will remain the same and your order will be sent out before the event next year. A date is not set in stone but will be set shortly. Possibly Labor day weekend have a tie up in party cove on Kaskaskia for people that will be staying local. Thank you Any thoughts please post below...Happy Boating

Plans for the club.....
The Clubhouse is insured with FEMA. The adjusters have been through the club and will hopefully be letting us know in the next coming weeks whether or not the building is repairable. We are on hold until that point.
The club got approximately 6 ft of water, covering all electric panels and all AC units. So clean up of building is taking longer while getting temp electric/water going.
I understand there is a lot of speculation, but there will be a club/pool at the harbor
We are doing the best we can and I will keep you informed as we hear.
Sorry, as I know this is not the season you were hoping for.
