Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago

Travel back in time to early Chicago to see how we reversed the Chicago River and developed wastewater treatment technology. Go behind the scenes and underwater to see how we transform water, descend 300 feet into the deep tunnel system, and watch our electrofishing crew at work sampling fish on the Chicago River. 

Our virtual tours are free and open to the public. Registration is required.
