Des Plaines River cleaner than in the past

While biking to and from the Lyons Township GOP picnic I saw evidence that the Des Plaines River is cleaner than it was in the past.

Lesson: if we (humans) stop doing harm to the environment, it is often resilient about rebounding. Of course, Lake Michigan is an example of an ecosystem that was destroyed. While it's not polluted like in the past, the ecosystem didn't rebound.
