The timing and phasing of dam removal in the City of River Falls is the most publicized of the many challenges we face in conserving and protecting the Kinnickinnic River for future generations. Climatic change, urbanization pressure and increasing groundwater use within our watershed all factor in to the future health of the Kinni. It is important to remember that we have many people and organizations with tremendous passion, energy and expertise involved in managing these challenges. Getting national exposure like this American Rivers 2018 Most Endangered Rivers listing will hopefully bring additional funding and resources to us to help meet those challenges.
