It’s Time for Urgency on Big Sioux River Quality [OPINION]
The topic for my P&L Statement on the Patrick Lalley Show on Monday (July 24) was the Big Sioux River.
I've talked about the river many times, and what a wonderful asset it is for Sioux Falls. And it's not just the actual river. The greenway that follows it is basically 30 miles of contiguous parks. It's a beautiful recreational corridor for out city.
On Saturday I was out and about and I saw a new craft on the water. It's a glimpse of the kind of fun that can be had when your river is usable. Floating The Big Sioux is allowed, just don't fall in.

Below is a video of the craft going through some little rapids at Rotary Park.
Below that is the audio of the full P&L Statement.
