Description: In 1992, the National Park Service initiated a project to galvanize local interest in the conservation and use of the Chicago Waterway System. The purpose of this project was to promote local stewardship of the waterway system through the integration of economic development, recreation, and environmental conservation. As a result, the ChicagoRivers Demonstration Project was initiated to include government resource agencies and private interests. These entities included the National Park Service, the USDA Forest Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, MWRDGC, the Friends of the Chicago River, and many volunteers.
