A C.rnntl Watrr-W-y from LV MUMfinii
to Hit Milll IUvr.
An a.ijournel meeting of the DualneM
Men' Association iu heU in tbe aupmU
ort' room at tli court home on Motility
evening of thU week, to .Uncus die niiemiou
of the proposed outlet ot Chicago sewerage
through this region of country. The meet
ing, considering the niegurenes of the no
tice, was well attended l.jr the leaJ'.ug busi
ness men and prumlneut clt'nena generally.
Mayor Allen, the president, after briefly
mentioning the subject and its vast Impor
tance, introduced Mr. Wm. Thomas, the ti
superintendent of the Illinois and Michigan
canal, who said In subxtauce :
" By invitation of the citixens 1 a in here
to make a few remarks iu explanation of the
way by which Chicago is proposed to be re
lieved of sewage. This trouble has been
an all important one in that city for a num
ber of years. There have been a number of
schemes restorted to to get rid of this mighty
nuisance in several yeara and the city has
out grown them all, each in its turu, and
... . - nl
now the oI4 trouble nas come nnui. me
topography of thecouutry around Chicago is
most fortunate for that city, that is, its loca
tion is advantageous for the disposal of sew
age. The idea prevalent in the country
of the people ouside, to a considerable ex
tent, is that Chicago Is imposing upon the
people outside, along the canal; tlmt she is
filling the canal with rubbish and poisouiug
the water and filling the air with steuches
from her sewers. 1 am not of this opinion.
If it is so the question now is, shall Chicago
be allowed to discharge any sort of water
into the canal. Uut 1 can show that Chicngo
Las a right to do so. The very act of con
gress granting the lands which were sold to
procure money to build the canal specifies
that it was "to unite the waters or Lake
Michigan with those of the Mississippi
river." The act of the state legislature ou
the same subject many years ago, gave the
same declaration. The state failed, it is true,
but the land grant did not, nor were any of
the original plans of the canal changed to
any important extent, so far as connecting
the waters of the lakes and the great river
wai coneerned. To say then that Chicago
has not the right to let the waters of the
lake into the canal is to go back upon the
contract. But this right does not permit
Chicago to commit a nuisance. She is liable
for all damages htr sewtnge may occasion.
The question is, shall Chicago be allowed to
cut a new channel to Joliet, taking the les
I'laines river from Bridgeport to Lockport,
large enough to carry from 150,000 to -00,.
000 cubic feet of water per minute? At this
point there is a dead level for eighteen miles.
From Summit to Bridgeport the original fall
was 7 feet ; then to Lemont there was no
fall ; then to Lsckport a fall of 20 feet. The
fall from Lockport to Joliet is 50 feet ; to
the mouth of Fox river 70 feet ; to La Salle
21 3-10, making 141 310 feet from Lockport
to La Salle. Chicago purposes to cut from
the lake to Lockport in the bed of the Des
I'laines river, thence down the Illinois river.
Under the former scheme of building tiie
canal, when the state broke down and aban
doned the enterprise, it was then as it had
been from the start demonstrated that there
could be no other plan than to cut out from
the lower end of the lake. But when the
canal work was resumed it was on the
" summit level." In 1805 a bill was passed
authorizing the canal trustees to make ar
rangements with Chicago to carry out the
original plan, and to authorize that city to
expend two and a half millions of dollars to
cut down the ' summit level.'' The chan
nel was CO feet wide with a declevity of 1-10
of a foot to the mile. From Lockport to
Joliet the fall is GO feet iu 5 miles ; Joliet
to Ottawa 70 feet in 63 or 54 miles; Ottawa
to La Salle 20 feet in Id miles. As we get
1 foot and 2-16 all the way down, so it is
easy to see that lake water would flow abun
dantly and rapidly through this channel.
What interest has Ottawa in this enterprise?
If the legislature will pass a law with proper
restrictions, so as to amply provide for all
damages ; if 2(X),000 cubic feet of flow per
minute shall flow iuto this channel, it must
be 100 feet wide and 10 feet deep. This
200,000 feet in the river might mtike a vol
uaae covering 1,000 feet wide here in places,
but you would have a navigable stream,
though in places it did overflow. The dum
at Henry at the south side, borders ou a field
belonging to Mr. Green. The dam raised the
water, but it did not overflow, yet the water
setback under the soil and this farm has
since become a willow swamp. Provision
should be made for all such damages. The
advantages to the people of a running siream
of clear, cold water, the year around, for
health alone, could not be properly estima
ted. The sewage of the great city of Chi
cago of course is a poison and roust be car
ried o(T in some way which is the least hurt
ful to all. If the great cities of Europe
which are far older than Chicogo, were cir
cumstanced as she is, they would undoubtly
relieve themselves of sewage in this way
by sending it to to the nearest large river
with a swift current. Of the vast sum of
money heretofore expended for the building
of the canal, more than one half was expend
ed north of Lockport. It is of vast im
portance to the cities' and towns along the
banks of the river In La Salle county, that
proper restrictions be put in the bill for this
improvement to secure full idemnity for all
d images that it may cause. These damages
will occur in the low places only, above Mar
seilles and like points of situation. These
lands belong to persons who would be gret
sufferers by any loss. It of vast importance
to Chicago with her 700,000 population. At
the time of the great fir that city had 292,.
000, when the " deep cnt " was male. Then
it only intended to relieve the south branch
of the Chicago, The deep cut was intended
to draw off 24,000 feet per minute, and at
I first it " worked to a charm.' At Lockpurl
t ie water was so clear that oue could e a
pin on the bottom at a depth of l' feet. The
lake nometimes varies In it height. It fell
from a 10 feel liiiein 1871, to 0 feel 6 iuche
In When they first igm pumping in-
to the lake lb sewage soiled (he water a
tar out as the crib.
"The north branch was intended to be
e'e uised by the Fullertou Avenue onduit,
by pumping water through it into the lake
uear Lincoln Park. This was found to inter-
fere with the water work at the crib. The
wheels were reversed and pumped the north
branch into the south branch, thus forciug
both Irani-he together with the outflow of
the south fork into the canal. Thus it may
be seen that the deep cut which was origin
ally luteu led to carry off the sewage of
the south branch only i now burdened with
the entire sewerage of the city, Including the
stock yards. The opening of the Ogden &
Wenthworth ditch has added its volume to
the canal. From the foregoing it may be
seen that the deep cut was not a failure, as
frequently stated, but that about four times
more has been added than was originally
intend I.
The flow was made out to the country by
43,000 gallons per K.inuteof lake water. In
my report to the canal commissioners in
187'., I suggested a plan or relief which the
secretary or the state board approved or.
He copied it. I thought it then a mistake
to destroy the old hydraulic works at Bridge
port. These works should be restored. I
recommended two dredges to work all the
season. Heretofore I have favored the deep
cut as the outlet for Chicago's sewerage, but
it is insufficient. Five millions of dollar
have been expended upon it.
"The work should be under only one board
of management, and Chicago haviug the
greater interest should control it. Two
boards would disagree, When I was super
intendent of the canal the Chicago board
complained because I did not do more, and
when they didn't pump enough we complain
ed. The flow should be kept brisk and uni
form so as to clear away the mud. No mud
has been taken out of the canal on that level
since July last. A flat was sunk 12 hours
in that water some years ago, and when it
came up everything about it was covered
with a deposit of half and inch of mud. The
channel is too narrow and level to increase
the flow or water. There was a question
once about raising the the gates at Lockport
between Mayor Colvin and myself. A pub
lic meeting was held at Joliet, and the sub
ject debated. I suggested a committee to
test whether an increased flow of water
could ' e obtained on that level by raising
the gates at Lockport. Col. R. B. Mason
and K. S. Chasborough were selected, two
distinguished men. They opened the gates
and found I was right. The water came no
faster, save for a little time back towards
the " Sag." In Mayor Harrison's time the
same question came up and was settled in
the same way. To increase the velocity you
must raise the head. If Chicago proposes
to raise the head to get a greater discharge
of water, my advice is to abandon the canal
for that purpose and use the bed of the
Des i'laines river, but of .course, give us am
pie protection for our low lands. In regard
to turning the sewage into the canal at
Channabon, we have a great interest at stake
The abondment of the Kankakee feeder is a
serious matter, and we must protest against
its being done
In behalf of the audience the president
thauked Mr. Thomas and then introduced
C. K. Cooley, civil engineer of Chicago, who
said substantially:
Gentlemen : I did not come here to talk
but to attend to my duties. I have not had
occasion to look up the sanitary features of
this subject. I came to see about the dam
age this improvement would be to bottom
lands and to ascertain the probable highest
flow of the water. I have been pleased to
hear Mr. Thomas' remarks, for he has ably
covered many points I should have touched
upon. Chicago has 900,000 people with its
suburbs fifteen miles up and down the lake
and for ten miles back, The eewaze is in
tolerable. If it increases without relief as
it has done, we shall die of its poisons. We
expect in 30 years to have a population of
2,500,000. There are three ways of getting
rid of the vast amount of sewage of our
city : One is to dump it in the lake south
ward and get our water supply 20 or 30
miles northward ; another is to drain it to
the sand hills of Indiana ; the third is to run
it into ti e Illinois river. It is likely we
may have to do both in 30 years. To get
t ie sewage to Indiana will cost $ 10,003,
000. Our water supply from the north and
dumping sewerage into the lake will cost
$40,000,000. To run down the Illinois river
valley will cost 20,000,000. This last is the
best way of all. Today you get the sewage
of seven hundred thousand people. You can
smell it at Joliet, a little at Morris, faintly
at Marseilles, and occasionally get a whif of
it here. Mr. Thomas spoke of the obliga
tions of contract. As long as water will find
it level, the water of Lake Michigan and
with , it some of Chicago's sewage will flow
out this way. But Chicago cannot, must not
make a nuisance here. She does net pro
pose to. The law will forbid it ; moral as
well as statutory law will forbid it. Von can
delute sewerage so that it will net stink ;
that it will not kill fish and fish are always
to be considered as unprejudiced observers
of unpleasant water I We don't want to turn
down here impure water and destroy your
fish, but to give you pure, wholesome water,
in which fish will thrive, and a little boy
may sit on a log and catch 'em. It is neces
sary for Chicago to have pure water there if
she can, so that fish can come out of tb lake
and float down to the gulf without fear of
strangulation. The channel we talk of mak. I
ing iito flow at the rate of COO, 000 cubic
feet or water per minute. We propose
. crease th volume of the Illinois 200,000
cublo feet. W pump into th canal 40. to
V) rxvi eubla feet ner minute aud we will
raise it to t0 or 70,000 per minute. In or
dinary low water one-third of th water that
passe Ottawa is Chicago sewage, toucan
judge if it i oxidiied or not. We propose
to give 24,000 feet per minute for every
100.000 reoDle down alone the canal. The
channel we propose to make will afford this
24,000 cubio feet per minute for the full
2,fi00,0tK, our estimated future population.
Your flow will be ten time as much as now
and no offensive smell at your city. We
have figured from the tables or old Kuropean
cities wLer the sewage question has been
a great jrtbUm, e;tltd on the Its' of age
of experience.
"At Chicago we have two rivers which at
high water flow back into the lake, convey
ing all the sewerage of the city and blacken
ing the water for miles. At the " summit "
the water divides, one half coming thl way
and the other half towards Chicago. Heavy
rain push all (he sewage or the north and
south branches into the lake. It is our pur
pose to protect ourselves against floods by
surrounding the city to the west aud north
with a large channel 24 reel wide aud 2-1 feet
deep, into which these freshets will all
be drained and carried to the lake, This
channel is to be independent of the canal,
but not to lei the sewerage into it or the
lake. The main channel may be 200 feet
wide and will cost f 20,000,000 for every
thing. We shall need to spend one million
to get through Joliet so as not to touch the
caual. We virtually terminate at Lake
Joliet ; from that point we let her go. The
effect of a flow of 600,000 cubic feet of water
per minute at Morris will add 8 or 9 times
to the flow ; it will raise the river 5 feet and
make it navigable to Kankakee without lock
or dam. It will raise the river at Ottawa G
feet and above to Marseilles 4 feet ; at La
Salle it will swell up to 8 or 9 feet above low
water mark. The Illinois river at that point
is a peculiar stream ; it wauders about
among the islands as if trying to find the
old lake outlet.
"It will be r.iieJ 4 feet above the pond at
Henry and the entire Illinois river from Ot
tawa to the Mississippi river will be a navi
gable stream 240 miles without locks or
dams! There will be need of two locks
above here, one of them at Marseilles. Chi
cago will pay the cost of this improvement.
Her channel will allow lake vessels to go
down to Joliet. This with the big river be
low will practically solve the problem of a
ship canal.
"There will be 8,000 or 10,000 acres of
land in the Morris bottom that will be over
flowed or damaged by high water. Twenty
per cent, of these lands will be ruined and
20 per cent, damaged more or less, waking
40 per cent, in all. From Morris to Mar
seilles and on to near La Salle but little dam
age will be done. Below that point I can't
any, not having estimated it. Probably
$200,000 will cover the damage from Joliet
to La Salle, and $500,000 in the whole state,
the entire length of the river. But another
point : If this is not done, if this great open
ing to the lake Is not made you will find
your own sewage an intolerable burden.
Joliet, Morris, Marseilles, Ottawa. La Salle,
Peru and Peoria, all discharge their sew
age into the river. Every town along the
river does It. The percentage of sewage
that each town adds to the waters would be
surprising to you if you could estimate it.
At the slow rate of the flow In the summer
120 feet a minute in the center of tho cur
rent and the water at the banks stagnant
and reeking with filth your own and your
up Btreatu neighbors will Boon become intol
erable and you will want relief, too, so you
will welcome this mighty flow of the pure
current from the lake whish has oxidized
and consumed the poisonous deposits of
your city sewers, and in their place supplied
a swift moving volume of cool, sparkling and
crystal waters from the lake." Applause.
Mayo said : " I am satisfied not to cross
examine the witness!" Laughter. I
have looked into the question for informa
tion and have come to the conclusion that
the opposition to this plan of solving this
great question are in the wrong. If we
now get two-thirds of the sewerage of Chi
cago w'.th so small a dilution of water, then
to greatly add to the volume of water must
entirely destroy the offeusive odors of the
stream. That the water of the Illinois river
at certain seasons of the year both sunime-
and winter are not only highly nauseous nrnl
unhealthy, is not a matter of doubt. Ik
had experienced the ill effects of this sew
age polluted water. So for the health and
pleasure of mankind, as that of the fish, he
preferred pure water, and if by this propos
ed scheme they can give us a flow of 200,000
to 300,000 cubio feet per minute of clear,
pure water, we shall certainly be greatly
benefited. I think we should instruct our
representatives in the legislature to vote for
this plan.
Mike Hanifin wasted information. Our
big floods often come within 4 or 5 feet of
the bridge. What will be the effect with this
5 feet added? What will be the efiect at
L'tica and places where bridge are low and
short? What will be the edict of a "set
back on the Fox river ? With 5 feet added
to our big spring flood, 400 or 500 poor fam
ilies would be drowned out.
Mayo: The plan is to take all the flood
water of the Des Plaines and the waters of
the surface of that region into a big channel
which will empty into the lake, so that we
shall get none of this surplus water. Thomas
bore out this statement fully. There is no
need of fears as to a flood's increase by this
new channel. The water of the eastern level
for the first 7 miles Invaribly flows to the
lake, and the next 17 miles west is a Head
level, but the greater part flows towards
Chicaeo. On thesur'ao of this flow to
toin-JwArJs the west thire wju11 be a raise of 18
inches. Th overflow and surfac water
nearly all go into- the lake. The proposed
channel around the city will make the How
absolutely certain to go into the lake. Bui
Mr. Hauifin' five feet of a rai-e commence
at low water mark, in the narrowest bed of
the stream, but the rise will spread the
waters out and rise them only a trifle.
Cooley : The volume or 5 feet is only at
low water mark. At 10 feet higher it would
give but 2 feet of a raise ; at high water if
the bank continue straight up it would oaly
raise a tmall fraction of a root. If you had
600,000 cubio feet more than in ordinary
stage of water you would soarcely notice it,
yet if there were no water before and no
leakage, it would raise five feet. In case of
a flood it will simply take place of the regu
lar flow from the lake.
Hanifin still doubted.
Tuft : It seems that besides the fresh
water in the tide, the extra rapidity will
more rapidly oxodize the air. The water of
a fish tank is still, and if not freshened the
fish perish for want of oxygen. In a swift
current the water is rolled over and over,
oxydized, and the conditions are proper for
fish life. Sewage must have oxygen .to be
consumed and that is facilitated by motion.
By rapid movement in this channel sewage
would tie deodorized and oxidized, and weed
and malarial fungi could not grow. The
stream would be pure and clear.
Cooley : Sludge, the sediment or sewage,
is deposited in the bottom or slow moving
streams, those having a current or less than
a mile an hour. That or the Chicago sewer
age is left nearly within the city limits and
caught or stirred up by the wheels of boats.
It would hardly get far fiom its "native
Mayo offered the following resolition,
which were adopted :
HfsolveJ, That the citizens of Ottawa favor
the proposition of Chicago to cut a channel
from Lake Michigan through to Lake Joliet,
of sufficient capacity to admit not less than
400,000 cubic feet of water per minute, and
that our representative be requested to co
operate with the Cook county members in
the passage of a suitable law for that purpose,
having reference to suitable safeguards
against damage by overflow in Illinois, in
case of the construction of the proposed
