    As Champaign grew larger Villa Grove developed a worsening flood problem. Who knew covering miles of ground with roofs and concrete would end up flooding "somewhere else" and who cares? You all do. The federal govt had to help fix it with very expensive pond projects built in C-U to hold water back it's complicated but...yeah it was expensive thanks.

    She pulls from far and wide pilgrim as she does the waterfowl. When she retreats the table is set and if it happens at the right time can lead to memories or disappointment but always a new landscape. Think what it might have been like before the COE, Sawgrass, Pin Oak, beaver and deer. Mostly a canal now.
