*Summary*
Like many urban rivers across the country, the Kinnickinnic River has been neglected -- laced with toxic contamination, lined with concrete, degraded and ignored. Multiple studies have highlighted these problems, and many local organizations and agencies have made Kinnickinnic River restoration a top priority. The local community has come together in an effort to cleanup the river and reclaim some of the economic, ecological and recreational benefits the Kinnickinnic once provided. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency should capitalize on this momentum and grant the funding necessary to support restoration efforts, rather than losing this opportunity to bring the river back to life.
