The Fewer Dams the Better

A simple post was put up today, Friday, October 26th, on the Facebook page of Marc Miller, Director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Governor Quinn Announces Completion of Hofmann Dam Removal

You can't remove too many dams from waterways and it looks like a few more are in the works.

This is a good thing.

Of course, I had to leave a note in response on Facebook with my own wish list...

Geneva, Batavia, North Aurora and Montgomery on the Fox would be nice. On it's creeks, Mill Creek has one that could go away easy enough. There are a few more small ones on Big Rock north of Plano, but no more ramping those please...

It's just a wish list, no hurry. My lifetime maybe, but I don't know how much of that I have left. 20 years perhaps.
