$5 billion Revival Leaves Milwaukee River Cleaner, More Valuable
Like most large rivers, the Milwaukee River has been altered over its history to suit human needs and desires. At times it had more than a dozen dams on the main stem, mostly to run grain mills or to provide power and water to local businesses and communities, according to DNR records.

For those who know the river only as the wide, brown flow that bisects Wisconsin's largest city, a visit to the upper Milwaukee is a world apart.

That portion of the Milwaukee River is only about 5% of it, but gets about 95% of the attention. The beginning of the river is obscured by cattails and grassy banks as it flows through culverts and past farm fields. It is home to creek chubs, leopard frogs and painted turtles. Great blue herons and sandhill cranes hunt along its banks.

Lock and Dam Changes Aimed at Stopping Invasive Carp - Bighead, silver and other invasive carp have been making their way upstream since escaping into the Mississippi River in the 1970s. These large fish are voracious eaters that compete with native species and pose a threat to rivers and lakes. While no breeding populations have been detected in Minnesota waters, individual fish have been caught in the Mississippi near the Twin Cities, the St. Croix River and the Minnesota River.
