Body Of Water Affected Title Description

DuPage River, West Branch

Posted 07/25/2008
Strainer Warning July 21, 2008:

"Due to a strainer across all but about 24", we just made it through with considerable effort...

Downstream of the downed tree, were 2 kayaks which had apparently ejected their occupants.

These boats had 2011 stickers, and appeared to be quite new, and were stuck in the construction booms at the Bailey St. bridge. They were partially submerged, so we could not get them out. I did not have pen or paper to get the registration number, so I went back about an hour later to check on them from the bridge. They were already gone."

Reported on PSC message board by Kathi Landow and Ellen Johnson
