July 4, 2014. The channel side of the Wilmette Pumping Station shows four sluice gate motor operators above the four water tunnels from left to center. Sluice gates at both ends of the water tunnels allow dewatering of the tunnels for maintenance. The two tunnels at left contain pumps; the pumps have been removed in the two tunnels to the right.
