BUILT ON WATER: WisconsinEye and Milwaukee Public Television have teamed up to produce a special that tells the story of the water that has run throughout Milwaukee’s history.
"Milwaukee: A City Built On Water," will air at 8 p.m. on April 22.
"Water was the reason Milwaukee is on the map – its harbors is the best on the western shores of Lake Michigan. Water shaped how the city’s first settlers earned a living. Its rivers were harnessed to grind flour and saw lumber, and millions of gallons were used to tan leather, cool machinery, and brew the beverage that made Milwaukee famous," a description of the one-hour show said.
"But as Milwaukee moved into the modern era, its use of its waterways became abuse. Portions of the Milwaukee River were choked with sewage and Lake Michigan was used as a garbage dump. However in recent decades, the currents of Milwaukee’s water have turned for the better and the damage of the past is being reversed."
On Tuesday, MPTV will host a screening at Discovery World. The public is invited to the free event, with a reception starting at 5:30 p.m. and the documentary screening at 7 p.m.
The special will be re-broadcast at 9 p.m. on April 23 on MPTV 36.
