Groups seeks greater Asian carp prevention in Great Lakes

The Great Lakes Boating Federation is urging the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to take new measures to keep Asian carp out of the Great Lakes.

An electric fish barrier in the Sanitary & Ship Canal is the primary means of keeping Asian carp out of the Great Lakes. However, the Great Lakes Boating Federation says carp could be carried past the fish barrier by flooding of the Des Plaines River.

The group says the Corps should:

  • construct a barrier to separate the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal from the Des Plaines River
  • build a second barrier in the Des Plaines River
  • prevent carp from entering the Sanitary & Ship Canal by filling in certain parts of the Illinois and Michigan Canal
