Richard Lanyon, retired Executive Director of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, will discuss his recent book Building the Canal to Save Chicago, a historical account of the 1890s project that enabled reversal of the flow in the Chicago River to protect the water supply for the Chicago area. He will conclude with some contemporary observations on the continuing importance of the canal system for protection of Lake Michigan, the impact added flow from Chicago had on the Illinois River and some historic photos of the Illinois River.
