Mississippi River At Grafton, Illinois

Business Owners Eager To Reopen In Grafton........


Tourism is a major economic driver for Grafton, Illinois and the COVID-19 outbreak and recent flooding have been devastating for the restaurants and other businesses there.  Some 60 percent of Grafton's revenue comes from tourism.


The Loading Dock Bar and Grill has been fortunate as the majority of their seating is outside.  The establishment still had to reduce the number of seats from 800 to 600 to maintain social distancing.


Peter Allen, co-owner of The Loading Dock says that they are glad to be reopening as funds were starting to run a bit short and the bills keep coming, whether you're open for business or not........

Mississippi River At Alton, Illinois

State Rep. Urges Preparation For Flooding........


In order to get local residents ready for heavy rainfall and flooding, Illinois State Representative Monica Bristow (D-Alton) is recommending everyone make preparations for severe weather.


Bristow says that the area has been adapting to flooding for years, but it is always important to go over ways to best prepare and remain safe.  He adds that with the current COVID-19 situation, it is also been easy to be distracted from preparing for the spring weather as they normally would.


Bristow suggest that residents living within the flood-prone regions to develop an emergency supply kit and have it ready to go.  The kit should include a battery powered radio with extra batteries, flashlights, bottled drinking water, a three day supply of non-perishable food and a first aid kit.


Bristow is also suggesting that residents of flood-prone areas keep important documents in a safe deposit box or other secure location to ensure that they are safe from flooding........

River Cruising News

Two River Cruise Lines Release 2020 Cruising Schedules........


Recently, two American river cruise passenger lines released their cruise schedules for the summer of 2020.  American Cruise Lines will be first to resume operations, with the American Song departing on June 20 along the Columbia and Snake River systems.  ACL's new vessel, American Harmony is slated to depart from Memphis, Tennessee on June 28th.


The American Queen Steamboat Company had originally intended to resume river cruising around the end of June, however, American Queen CEO and President John Waggoner announced on May 27th that they would be extending their cruise resumption dates into July.


The company states that the revised timeline was in response to the evolving nature of the COVID-19 outbreak and following continued governmental restrictions at many ports, cities and public institutions.  AQSC has also partnered with Ochsner Health to help with new health protocols to protect their passengers........

Some Highlights of This Week's


District 8 MRS                                                 UPDATED May 27, 2020

Mississippi River System



The following areas are in the high water action phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:
Pool 28 (Mile 185.0 – Mile 160.1) and
Pool 29 (Mile 160.0 – Mile 109.9).
Towboat operators should exercise caution, minimize wake where possible and be experienced in high water operations. Down-streaming operations are not recommended unless the vessel is equal to or greater than 75 feet in length and the vessel has a minimum of 1,800 h.p. Be
aware of a buildup of debris in fleeting areas may have occurred and take appropriate action to prevent breakaways from occurring. Exercise caution in all passing and meeting situations and be mindful of all charted bridge navigational clearances. Navigation buoys may have been
dragged off station, so remain cautious while transiting. In St. Louis Harbor (Mile 184.0 – Mile 179.0), south-bound tows greater than 600 feet in length, excluding the towboat, limit their transit to
daylight hours. All towing vessels should have a minimum of 250 h.p., for every 2,000 tons of cargo.


The following areas are in the high water watch phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:
Zone 2 Hardin (Mile 49.9 – Mile 10.0) and
Zone 1 Grafton (Mile 9.9 – Mile 0.0).
The following areas are in the high water action phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:
Zone 7 Peoria (Mile 187.0 – Mile 145.6), mariners are requested to minimize their wake between approximate Miles 179.0 and 162.0,
Zone 6 Copperas Creek (Mile 145.5 – Mile 129.0),
Zone 5 Havana (Mile 128.9 – Mile 102.0), mariners are requested to minimize their wake between approximate Miles 128.5 and 127.5,
Zone 4 Beardstown (Mile 101.9 – Mile 80.3) and,
Zone 3 Meredosia (Mile 80.2 – Mile 50.0).
High water and drift potential may be encountered in this area. Mariners are advised to minimize wake and exercise caution. Laying up on saturated levees is prohibited. Mariners should be experienced in high water conditions and avoid down-streaming operations if possible. Mariners should remain vigilant to an increase in debris and maneuver appropriately. Be aware that a buildup of debris in fleeting areas may have
occurred and take appropriate actions to prevent breakaways. Exercise caution in all meeting and overtaking situations, as swift currents may be present. Navigational buoys may have been dragged off station, so remain cautious while transiting. Recreational traffic is strongly discouraged due to debris and swift currents. Mariners should avoid pushing in along the RDB, in the vicinity of Mile 167.0, due to railroad tracks in close proximity to the bank line.

The St. Louis Aquarium and other attractions inside Union Station have been shut down since mid-March, when restrictions on crowd gatherings began to be put into place in the St. Louis region.


While the City of St. Louis has eased restrictions on restaurants already, the larger "Cultural Institutions" such as the St. Louis Aquarium, may begin to reopen on June 8th........

424 Broadway, Alton, IL



We are so grateful Madison County is supporting Businesses Opening Back Up! In light of Madison County opening with guidelines, Bluff City Grill will continue to remain closed at this time. We plan to announce an Opening date as soon as we have one! Due to our licensing being both County & State, we are not able to just open our doors with the decision made by Madison County, but hopefully this gets the ball rolling. Choosing to go against the State’s order could result in ... See More

Calhoun Ferry Company’s priority is the health and safety of our crew and passengers.
We received a call today from the U.S. Coast Guard advising us that all passengers will be required to stay in their vehicles when crossing the ferry. This is in response to the restrictions placed on gatherings of 10 or more people. This will remain in effect until the restrictions are lifted.
We are cleaning and disinfecting all crew areas and all ferry passes as we receive them.
Starting tomorrow 03/21/2020 we will be reducing our hours to eliminate the late night shift on Friday and Saturday. This will remain in effect until the restrictions are lifted. Hours will be Monday through Saturday 5am to 9pm and Sunday 8am to 9pm.
We will all get through this together by working together for a better tomorrow. Stay safe!
Thank You,
The Calhoun Ferry Company

Had a question about the pump out. At least that is working. Remember what you are working with and be careful. Pat and Julio got it going today. Maybe the weather will improve for the week end. See you at the end of the road.



Know everyone is curious when our bath rooms will open. Not for awhile I am sorry to report. We cannot open until we can make sure you guys are all safe. We do not have the necessary supplies to keep it completely sanitized on a daily basis. Also the Missouri DNR just sent us a new email regarding EPA new guidelines on our water systems. SO will order another blue box, sorry for the inconvenience, but not going to be forever we hope.
Think positive.

"The plan is to keep it in the same location, maybe a little closer to the river and up about 7 ft higher. The building will be just a little smaller with a bigger deck."

St. Charles Boat & Motor update:
Due to the unprecedented time that the country is experiencing, we are implementing some additions to our normal routine:
At this time, we remain open for business, operating with a small staff.

If you’d like to shop any new or used inventory with us with minimized social interaction, we can schedule individual appointments or send you a virtual video tour of a unit. You can always shop our inventory on our website as well, at www.stcharlesboat.com. We currently have some huge discounts on our in stock inventory! If you’re interested in a private appointment, please e-mail us at zeke@stcharlesboat.com or you can call us at 636-947-0106 during normal business hours.
For your service needs, we can schedule a touchless drop off and pick-up with you. For touchless drop off or pick-up, e-mail Jerry at jerry@stcharlesboat.com or Zeke at zeke@stcharlesboat.com for scheduling and instructions.
We realize that this too will pass and we can return to a more normal routine, which means getting back to boating for many of us!
