In October 1978, the State Water Survey initiated a study of the hydraulics of flow and sediment transport of the Kankakee River in Illinois and Indiana. The study plan called for a two-year program with one year of data collection and one year of analysis. A working draft of the report for this project was sent to the contracting agency in August 1980. The final report was printed in May 1981 (Bhowmik et al., 1980).

During the writing of the original final report by Bhomik et al. (1980), it was decided to limit its content to the specific contract requirement. However, in the course of field data collection a considerable volume of field data was collected which did not apply directly to the content of that report.

This report serves three purposes:

  1. To discuss and review the data collection during the initial study period that was not considered in the original report.
  2. To discuss and review the data collected after the conclusion of the original study.
  3. To evaluate the sediment transport analysis of the original report given an additional year of field data collection.
