Proof Is in the Projects

June 2016

CSO Long-Term Control Plan - Des Plaines River Tunnel

At first glance, the project seemed fairly routine: build an 865' tunnel, 111.5" in diameter, underneath the Des Plaines River. However, due to the fact that the river was channelized in the 1920s, the eastern shaft elevation was lower than the elevation of the river. Because of this, if any water from the river made its way into the tunnel, there would be potential for flooding on a large scale.
