Drainage that beautifies/Floating river ecosystems

July 25, 2017

Ingham County, Michigan Drainage Commissioner Patrick Linneman is internationally known for his drainage projects. They replace pipes with plants, creating wetlands and fountains for public enjoyment.


A floating ecosystem was installed this summer in the longtime polluted but much-improving Chicago River. Not only will it beautify parts of the river, it’ll help birds, fish and other wildlife to return to the river.  Nick Wesley Urban Rivers is our guest.

Chef Mareya Ibrahim has a follow-up to last week’s healthy grilling recipe with a healthy grilled dessert that’s perfect for summer celebrations.
