This interim report summarizes the work completed within the first nine months of the project. This report summarizes all of the existing streamflow records for Illinois and for two stations from Indiana, lists the available literature, and describes the field trip to the site. Analyses of the bed and bank material samples collected during the field trip also are included. Maps of the bank lines from the Route 30 Bridge in Indiana to the confluence of the Kankakee River with the Des Plaines… 

River Geometry, Bank Erosion, and Sand Bars within the Main Stem of the Kankakee River in Illinois and Indiana

This is the third and final report on the Kankakee River in Illinois supported by the Conservation 2000 Program of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. For this project, the Illinois State

SIAM CASE STUDY: KANKAKEE RIVER BASIN, INDIANA AND ILLINOIS

The Kankakee River extends from South Bend, Indiana to its confluence with the Illinois River near Wilmington, Illinois. The river has a 5,165 square mile drainage area and a length of about 150

Watershed Based Management of the Kankakee River

Rivers and streams reflect the impacts and effects of human activities and natural perturbations that take place on the watershed. The response time for the river to react for the changes taking

Case Study: Application of the HEC-6 MOdel for the Main Stem of the Kankakee River in Illinois

This case study paper presents results on the application of the HEC-6 model to the main stem of the Kankakee River in Illinois, a distance of about 39.3 km. Modeling was performed to develop
