Questions on city's dams


The Commercial-News

---- — Dam questions must be asked

Editor:

A few questions come to mind regarding the modifications to the river and dams.

How many injuries or fatalities ever reported prior to fatality a few years ago?

How many injuries or fatalities reported after the young woman lost her life a few years ago?

Were there ever permanent safety warning signs installed prior to this fatality? Any warning signs after? Any consequences if warnings were ignored?

Will the city of Danville and state of Illinois ensure there will never be another accident, injury or fatality in the future if modifications take place?
