Thornton Quarry Tours

For all my friends in Chicago's South Suburbs, you can get tours of the Thornton Quarry, which apparently is due to be filled with water.
Until the water starts flowing, however, the MWRD is taking groups to see the dry reservoir. Various delegations from neighboring communities have visited, and Spyropoulos said that if interested groups contact her office, it will arrange a tour. I carefully explained, several times, that if you put a thing like that in the paper, people will actually do it. But she insisted that’s OK. So for next month or so, now’s your chance. Because it’ll be under water a long, long time. Though if you do go, a word of advice: Bring sturdy boots. Because Brad Sutter won’t let you in otherwise. 
To schedule a tour, contact the MWRD Office of Public Affairs at or phone 312-751-6633.
