DNR to recommend removing 2 Danville dams
DANVILLE (AP) — The state of Illinois soon plans to make public a study recommending the long-discussed removal of two eastern Illinois dams where at least a half-dozen people have died in recent decades, a newspaper reported Sunday.
IDNR Director Marc Miller in coming weeks will provide to Danville city leaders recommendations for removing the Ellsworth Park and Vermilion River dams, according to the (Danville) Commercial-News (http://bit.ly/WBQ0ii).
Removal of the Vermilion River dam has been bandied about for years, as it is the site of three deaths in the past two decades, the last one involving a canoeist in 2003. Four drownings, including three since the early 1970s, have happened at the Ellsworth Park dam.
