Where does the water go when it flows down the drain? In the summer of 2007, Matt Bergstrom and Mike Phippen scavenged discarded junk from Chicago's alleys to build a pedal-powered raft they christened the Water Bug. On a drizzly August day they set sail on an expedition to explore the natural and unnatural channels that drain the city. Through storms and floodwaters the two adventurers navigate a little-known industrial waterscape, confronting obstacles that nearly break apart their homemade craft. Flood and Flotsam is an account of a memorable one-way journey down Chicago's drain.
