A sign along the Cal-Sag Channel in Blue Island warns visitors: “Caution, this waterway is not suitable for: wading, swimming, jet skiing, water skiing/tubing, (or) any human body contact.”

Several local officials, including the head of the agency that oversees the waterway, plan to disregard the warning this month by taking a dip in the Cal-Sag Channel.

Organizers say the Aug. 27 event, being billed as the Cal-Sag Plunge, will raise funds to build the eastern extension of the Cal-Sag Trail. The event is also designed to raise awareness about improved water quality and recreational opportunities in the Southland….Please click here to read Ted Slowik’s column in the Tribune/Daily Southtown.

SSMMA’s Director of Economic Development Reggie Greenwood is also taking a dip in the Cal-Sag Channel to raise funds for the cause. Please click here to support him.
