Abstract:

One of the major causes for the degradation of Peoria Lake, located in Central Illinois, has been the influx of sediment from local tributaries such as Blue Creek. In conjunction with the Illinois River Ecosystem Restoration, Illinois Feasibility Study and in cooperation with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (sponsor), Illinois State Water Survey and local land owners, the Army Corps of Engineers Rock Island District is developing a sediment management project that would utilize existing quarries near the Blue Creek tributary. The project would manage incoming sediment loads generated in the watershed due to runoff, gully erosion and channel bank instability. The Blue Creek Sediment Management Project is an example of an effective method to remove sediment by integrating the public, the private sector and government agencies in hopes of improving lake conditions and encouraging proactive management projects.
