End of the Pipe

This sounds pretty cool.

Millions of gallons of fresh water are flowing under Chicago right now. As our region grows, more and more people want to divert some their way.

On Tuesday, August 5 at 9 a.m, Chicago Public Radio’s (WBEZ 91.5 FM) Eight Forty-Eight morning newsmagazine will premiere a documentary that explores the city’s water supply.

In The End of the Pipe, independent producers Laura Starecheski and Gregory Warner take listeners on a near-epic journey of our water as it moves from Lake Michigan, into the city and beyond to the suburbs. Along the way, we’ll meet some of the people who pump, pipe, and control the future of our water. Part history lesson, part cautionary tale, The End of the Pipe brings us the remarkable history and uncertain future of greater Chicago’s water supply.

We encourage listeners to call in live with your comments about how we’re managing our region’s water supply. The call-in number is 312-832-3124.

What we’re expecting them to find:
A) Missing mobsters
B) Many sets of car keys
C) Whoever hired Angelo Torres
D) A lot of smack flushed in a hurry
