Mill Street Dam
Vermilion River - Pontiac, IL

Old flour mill dam made of concrete. This is NOT navigatable!!!! you have to take out under high or low water conditions.
short partage under low or normal water levels would be to paddle to the south side of dam and take out walk around 50 ft and put back in below dam. under high than normal water conditions I would talk out at the boat ramp in the bark and portage below the dam a ways, maybe riverside park. under higher than normal water conditions the dam turns into a low head(downing machine) type. 50.0 (feet) Map it
