Flooding along the Kankakee River is being tackled more aggressively.  Scott Pelath is the executive director of the Kankakee River Basin Commission.  He says 2.3 million in state funding has been received.  Farmers along the river are also being assessed a fee to provide additional dollars toward solutions toward flooding that many feel have gotten worse over the years.  Pelath said dollars are now being allocated.


Pelath, a former state representative from Michigan City, was praised for bringing about solutions faster than ever before.  The funds are going toward a 40 year river maintenance plan.
