Mississippi River At Alton, Illinois

Downtown Alton Businesses Recuperating From Flooding........


Morrison's Irish pub was closed for nine days following this last round of flooding.  The business, located adjacent to the Great River Road in Downtown Alton, was surrounded by water.


Thanks to the efforts of pub employees and Alton city workers, the pub did not sustain any damage to the main floor.  Crews had up to seven pumps running at one time, and were manning the pumps around the clock.


Water did get up to the the main floor trusses, and after an inspection from the health department, Morrison's was able to reopen on May 17.  Friday night, they hosted a little flood party........

Illinois Bringing Alligator Gar Back........


The State of Illinois is working on reintroducing the locally extinct alligator gar to waterways across the state.  The alligator gar was once found within Illinois waters, but was wiped out.  The last recorded catch of an alligator gar in Illinois waters was in 1966.


According to Dan Stephenson, chief of fisheries for the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, his division received alligator gar fry from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.  The fry are raised in hatcheries, and then released.


Back in 2009, the Illinois DNR started restocking alligator gar before taking several years off.  They resumed their efforts last year, stocking some 1,600 alligator gars.  Illinois received this years supply of of alligator gars in May, and will raise them until September, when they'll be released........

Front entrance is still under water as of today. In order to do any boating this weekend you will need to drive in the back entrance off Leclaire Street thru Sioux Harbor. However the restrooms will NOT be in service this weekend. Please be courteous to our neighbor as we will be driving thru their marina so keep your speed to a minimum. Longshot Saloon will be open both Saturday and Sunday. We appreciate all your patience at this difficult time.

Barges Strike Champ Clark Bridge.... Wedge Under Train Bridge....


Early Friday morning, a tow struck the Champ Clark Bridge spanning the Mississippi River at Louisiana, Missouri.  Two of the barges ended up wedged below the nearby rail bridge.


Lieutenant Sean Haley of the U.S. Coast Guard Upper Mississippi Sector reports that Ingram Marine was pushing a tow of 15 barges downstream.  Just before 6 am, the tow struck the Champ Clark Bridge.


Five barges broke free of the tow, and three have been recovered.  Ingram Marine crews were working to free the remaining two barges from the rail bridge........

Flooding News

Expert:  Levees Contribute To Record Floods........


Flooding typically begins with rainfall, which no one can control.  Some experts, however, are saying that rainfall combines with overbuilt levees are causing the record flooding in the St. Louis Metropolitan Region.


Bob Criss, a professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University says that the St. Louis Region has too many levees, some of which are overbuilt, and too close to the water.


David Stokes with the Great Rivers Habitat Alliance says that these levees might protect some areas, but they essentially move the flood plain elsewhere........

Business May Not Reopen After Flood........


While Scott Coleman, owner of Some Other Place Bar and Grill, has rebuilt following flooding in the past, this time around, he is saying that it is out of his control.


Some Other Place Bar and Grill has been closed since it was flooded out earlier this month, and while the water is gone, the project is on hold.  Coleman says that they are waiting for a Jefferson County official to come out to give them the go-ahead to rebuild.


Coleman reports that the only damage his business sustained was to the ceiling.  He said that he went ahead and replaced the insulation and duct work that got wet........

News Release.......


EMPHASIS: Troop G Advisory For Waterways

Captain Mark G. Inman, commanding officer Troop G, Willow Springs, would like to caution the public: Recent flooding may impact recreational water activities over the upcoming Memorial Day holiday. The flooding has caused damage to many rivers and facilities in the Troop G area. Additionally, some canoe outfitters are conducting cleanup operations and recovering from the high water. Downed trees obstruct many of the rivers as well as the accesses. The Ozarks National Scenic Riverways is reporting portions of the Current and Jacks Fork rivers are closed to public use. While this situation could change, boaters should try to educate themselves regarding these conditions and what recreational opportunities remain available, and plan accordingly.

“The flooding has made some of our waterways dangerous,” said Captain Inman. “Visiting a website or making a phone call could make a big difference in planning a safe, successful holiday outing.”

For the most up-to-date information about river closures and closures due to flood damage, please visit the National Park Service website at or call the park headquarters at 573-323-4236.

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!!

Nautical Legislation

Senate Panel Advances Bills Beneficial to Boating, Fishing Industries........


On Thursday, three bills that would be beneficial to the boating and fishing industries advanced in the U.S. Senate.  The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee approved the Coast Guard Reauthorization Act of 2017, the Billfish Conservation Act, and the Small Shipyards and Maritime Communities Act.


The Coast Guard Reauthorization Act authorizes Coast Guard funding for fiscal 2018, and possibly fiscal 2019.  The National Marine Manufacturers Association supports several safety and boating provisions in the bill.  Opponents, however, say the bill would weaken protections against the spread of invasive species and ballast discharge.


Reportedly, S.1129 contains provisions that transfer the control of ballast water from the Environmental Protection Agency to the Coast Guard.  While there are disagreements about provisions related to the Vessel Incidental Discharge Act, committee members are confident they can work out a compromise........
