Gabriel’s staff put on their ISO-certified solar eclipse glasses and enjoyed our viewing today (despite the clouds at peak eclipse time).
For a limited time, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) is offering free tours of its Mainstream Pumping Station and McCook Reservoir this summer and fall. The tours will give visitors a complete overview of the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP) system and how it functions to improve local water quality and mitigate flooding throughout Cook County.
McCook Reservoir is scheduled to be completed in late 2017. It will be the last and largest of three reservoirs being constructed as part of TARP.
