UPDATE: Around 1:30 pm today a regatta boat has went under. The occupant(s) are believed to be OK.  It is unknown on the cause .

There have been several reports of citizen boats on the closed river causing issues and wakes.

They have requested a police boat to be on the river today to assist with the citizen boats causing issues. But they do not have a police boat on the river.

UPDATE: The river is closed from Riverside and Whitman.  The boats are not listening and are interfering with the regatta. There is at least one boat on the river giving the event a hard time.


Today many people are down on the Rock River.
