CHICAGO ENGINEERS MOVE FAST TO FINISH EPIC TUNNELLING FEAT

The excavation and construction of an underground tunnel known as the Little Calumet Leg, which lies two hundred feet beneath the lakefront skyline in Chicago, will mark completion of the first major phase of the Tunnel and Reservoir Plan (TARP) project. The environmentally- directed project, which is already 30 years in the making, seeks to prevent contaminants from escaping into local communities by redirecting treatable sewage 110 miles through the city to three reservoirs for processing. The project is set for completion sometime between 2012 and 2014.
