The restoration of North Pond in Lincoln Park in Chicago is just around the corner

CHICAGO (AP) – The organizers of an initiative to restore North Pond in Chicago’s largest park hope to meet their fundraising goal and start work early next year.

The Chicago Tribune reported that North Pond in Lincoln Park is drying up due to eroding banks and algal bloom. The restoration work is expected to cost $ 7.3 million and a nonprofit raised money to dredge the pond.

“North Pond has such an important connection to the people,” said Doug Widener, executive director of the Lincoln Park Conservancy.

The man-made pond was built in the mid-1880s. The restoration plan would deepen the pond from its current depth of 2 to 3 feet to about eight feet and add erosion controls.

Widener hopes that the work can be completed in late summer or early autumn next year.
