Lake Michigan Water Pumping Station
Tuesday, 11th October 2005 by James Turnbull
A couple of readers pointed out a cool-looking pumping station (in the thumbnail) and another not-so-cool one, both in Lake Michigan. Presumably they are both involved in pumping water towards the nearby city of Chicago; Lake Michigan is the largest freshwater lake in the US and supplies the drinking water for some 10 million people.
Strangely both pumping stations come with a free plane passing overhead. What’s the chances?
