Stabenow Reaction Following Discovery of Bighead Asian Carp

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) made the following statement after a Bighead Asian carp was found in Lake Calumet along the Chicago Area Waterway System. It is the first physical specimen that has been found above the Army Corps of Engineer's Electric Barrier System.

"This evidence should be a wake-up call that this is an urgent situation for the Great Lakes. I strongly urge the Army Corps to close the locks now while they continue to determine the best way to permanently separate the Chicago Area Waterway System from the Great Lakes."

-- U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow

Last month, Stabenow along with a bipartisan group of Senators representing Great Lakes States, including Michigan, Illinois, New York, Ohio, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, urged the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee to make changes to the law allowing work on a permanent hydrological separation to begin.
