S33 E18: Illinois River Update: River Silt and Asian Carp

Season 33 Episode 18 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

The Illinois River has struggled for decades with a build-up of silt. More recently, native fish have suffered population decline when invasive Asian carp entered the riverway. In two separate conversations, we address efforts to use river silt and river sand, combined with compost, for a new engineered soil for commercial sale. And fishermen have a new option for their growing Asian carp catch.
