The first map is the Chicago River Map, a detailed river map that shows all major rivers flowing through this city. The Chicago River is 156 miles long (251 km) and flows through Chicago (Illinois), USA. The river is not so long. The river is the only river in the world that flows in a reverse direction (with the help of Civil Engineering, the natural flow direction of this river changed backward).
The second map is related to the Diversion map of the Chicago River. In this map, you will get to know about the flow direction, information about the mouth of this river, its tributary rivers, and its drainage information, as you can see in the map, how the water flow is diverted into its reverse direction. The main reason behind this diversion is the – pollution in this river and Michigan Lake. Later in 1886, researchers at the University of Illinois, with the help of civil engineering, a campaign is run to clean the river to control the disease and pollution. After a long, the plan to reverse the direction of the Chicago River was completed in 1900.
The third map is titled “Chicago Riverwalk Map.” In this map, you will learn about the Riverwalk area beside the Chicago River. The Chicago Riverwalk is located on the south bank of the Chicago River. This riverwalk is stretched from Lake Shore Drive and Lake Michigan to Lake Street.
