12. COAL CRÉEK DRAINAGE AND LEVEE DISTRICT,

ILLINOIS RIVER, ILL. Location.-On the right or west bank of the Illinois River, between miles 85.0 and 92.0, opposite the city of Beardstown, Ill.

Existing project. This project involves the construction of approximately 3.8 miles of set-back levee along the river front and the degrading of 0.6 mile of existing levee to reduce flood heights at and above Beardstown, Ill., by widening and improving the floodway of the Illinois River. The project was authorized by the Flood Control Act approved June 22, 1936, being one of the projects authorized for levee set-backs and improvements to floodway between Beardstown, Ill., and mouth of the Illinois River, and is described in House Document No. 182, Seventy-second Congress, first session. The estimated construction cost, in 1944, was $810,000; lands and damages, $58,000.

Local cooperation.-See page 5 for requirements. Written assurance that the requirements of local cooperation will be fulfilled has been furnished by the commissioners of the district. The district is endeavoring to liquidate its present indebtedness so that court action to acquire land can be taken.

Operations and results during fiscal year.—Preliminary surveys were continued in connection with the 1936 project by hired labor at a cost of $1,289.45, all new work. The total expenditures were $1,079.25.

Condition at end of fiscal year.-The total cost as of June 30, 1945, was $5,015.48 and expenditures were $4,803.78, all new work. Construction has not been started.

Proposed operations. The unexpended balance at the end of the fiscal year, $5,796.22, will be applied to the preparation of plans and specifications.

The additional sum of $799,400 can be profitably expended during the fiscal years of 1946 and 1947 ($500,000 of this total in 1946) in new work construction of approximately 3.8 miles of set-back levee along the river front and the degrading of 0.6 miles of existing levee to reduce flood heights at and above Beardstown, Ill., by widening and improving the floodway of the Illinois River.
