Our Great Lakes are at risk. Asian carp threaten the lakes and our regional economy. These devastating fish are moving closer to the lakes each year. Not too long ago, an Asian carp was found just 9 miles from Lake Michigan.
In late November, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released a final plan to stop Asian carp, and they need to hear from you. The Corps is proposing additional protections to stop Asian carp in the Des Plaines River, just downstream of Chicago and Lake Michigan. Tell the Corps to act now, before it’s too late.
Your voice can make a difference. Tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to:
- Move rapidly to construction;
- Commit funding to the next phase of the project; and
- Expedite the project wherever possible.
