Four More Years of Asian Carp Study
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers told Congress this week it may take another four years of study before any actual work begins on a plan to stop invasive Asian carp from reaching Lake Michigan.

The Corps of Engineers has $8 million to research and test control measures at the Brandon Road lock and dam on the Des Plaines River in Illinois, a choke point in the Chicago Area Waterway System where it is considering measures to keep the fish from migrating upriver into the Great Lakes, she said.

The task force meeting comes after juvenile silver carp were discovered Oct. 22 in the Illinois River upstream of Seneca, Illinois, advancing the verified spawning area 66 miles upstream to within 76 miles of Lake Michigan this year.

According to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, the adult population front is about 55 miles from Lake Michigan and 40 miles south of an electronic river barrier that some in the Great Lakes community believe is not sufficient to keep the leaping fish contained to the Mississippi River basin.

Private Partnerships Have Positive Impact on Water Quality - There are ways to reduce the runoff that contributes to water quality problems and kills marine life, year after year. Algae blooms can be minimized and maybe even prevented if we scale up existing efforts to improve fertilizer efficiency and soil health – practices that can also save farmers money and boost their yields.
