The hydrology, sediment transport, and hydraulics of flow were investigated for the Kankakee and Iroquois Rivers in Illinois and Indiana. The hydrologic analysis of flood and low flows showed that the Kankakee River near Wilmington, which reflects the combined flows from the Iroquois and the upper Kankakee Rivers, is strongly influenced by the Kankakee River during low flows. The presence of wetlands and the sandy soils in the upper Kankakee River were identified as among the major reasons for such influences.
