      I've heard for years that Chicago is taking water out of Lake Michigan to fill up the Mississippi River. Many think that is the reason Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are so . The River is also noteworthy for its natural and human-engineered history. In , the Illinois General Assembly decided to reverse the flow of the Chicago River through civil engineering by taking water from Lake Michigan and discharging it into the Mississippi River watershed, partly in response to concerns created by an extreme weather event in that threatened the city's water Source: Lake Michigan.

    Reversal of the Chicago River, Chicago IL () As Chicago grew into a major metropolis, its river became an open sewer that fed directly into the city’s water supply. It took a crafty engineer named Ellis Chesbrough to come up with a startling plan: reverse the flow of the river to the Mississippi, toward the city’s longtime rival, St. Louis. Before the lock and dams were built on the Illinois River, it was very hard to navigate which created a long and wearying trip. Because it was important to have a water connection between Lake Michigan (Chicago) and the Mississippi River, the Illinois and Michigan Canal was built in the mid 's.
