IMPROVEMENT OF ROCK
RIVER HELD INFEASIELE
An unfavorable report has been
made hv Mai. C. Mel), 'lownscnl. for
mer cliiet 01 government engineers
at Keck Island, on the feasibility of
improving' Kock river from its mouth
to Kochford. The report is made to
the war department and is based on
an examination made of Kock river
under Mai. Tovvnsend's supervision.
eorrtary of War Koot has submit-
W'd the report to congress.
Maj. T wnsend says that Lake llori-
oou. the porporteel source of Kock
river, would feed the sumit level of
the canal extending from bake Michi
gan to the Mississippi river, with
hicks !l(i feet long. :si feet wide and a
depth of 7 feet of water. Kei-ent
augings of the river at Sterling give
a minimum discharge of TOO cubic feet
It also was found that by a series
of dams and lateral canals slack water
navigation of 7 feet can be obtained
the entire length of the river.
The con.-t met ion of the Illinois anil
Mississippi canal, however, will change
the conditions, says Mai. Townsend.
The canal will have a depth of 7 feet
and a minimum top width of SO feet,
and is to be supplied with water
from Kock river by a feeder of simi
lar dimensions. It is not probable
that the whole water discharge from
Kock river at Sterling is sufiecient to
supply this canal. Hut as the feeder
will be navigable and with the Illinois
aul Mississippi canal will offer a
means of water coinmunioat ion to
both the Illinois and Mississippi rivers,
the slack water improvement of the
river itself below Sterling would be of
Maj. Townsend reports that tha 'um
pie would not derive any benefit in"i'Kr'
matter of freight rates by the im
provement. He therefore makes an
unfacoralde reeomineiidat ion.
