How does Chicago get rid of the sewage from their cities?

    Chicago’s sewage is transported through the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal, which has been in use since 1922. Chicago’s sewage originally flowed directly into Lake Michigan, so the canal was created to avoid pollution of the Great Lakes. However, the canal is connected to other rivers, such as the Chicago river, the Illinois river, and the Des Plaines river, all of which have become polluted with fecal matter.
