Reminder: Kankakee River Still Closed
The Momence Police Department would like to insure that everyone is aware of the fact that the Illinois Department of Conservation has ordered the Kankakee River Closed.
This means that no one is authorized to be on and/or in the Kankakee River. With the high water and rapid current the conditions for boating and other recreational activites are unsafe.
