The River Restoration Practices and Concepts Series:
Fish Passage on Midwestern Streams: Evaluation of Stability and
Functionality of Dam Removals, Constructed Fishways and Culvert
Illinois Institute of Technology, Wheaton, IL
201 East Loop Road
Wheaton, IL 60187-8489
The two-day seminar and field workshop is for professional fisheries
managers, engineers, planners, and others interested in this rapidly
expanding area of river and stream restoration. The workshop will focus
on evaluation of constructed fishways, dam removal, and culvert projects.
Specifically we hope to address issues relating to the effectiveness of
the various approaches to restoring connectivity on Midwestern Rivers and
The first day of the workshop will include invited speakers who will
discuss topics such as: modeling of fish passage, effectiveness of full
dam ramps; evaluation of Denil structures; use of telemetry for fish
passage evaluation; road culvert designs for fish passage and hydrologic
stability; stream bed simulation in culverts; case studies of ramps;
bypass channels; and dam removals.
The second day will include a field trip that will visit a number of
projects sites in the Chicago suburban area, including: a dam removal on
a large river; dam removals on a small tributary stream; a full dam ramp
and bypass channel on a large stream; and a Denil structure and
fish/canoe passage channel on a large river.
