The Discovery Channel’s Drain the Great Lakes dives below the surface of the Great Lakes. See the underwater topography of each lake and learn about shipwrecks, submerged waterfalls, craters and invasive species.
The lakes hold almost 20 percent of the world’s surface freshwater … but what if the water was gone? The program explores some of the man-made and natural wonders underneath the waters, and exposes the geographic uniqueness of the giant water bowls that surround us.
Using some cool computer imagery, the Discovery folks take viewers on a pretty fantastic voyage that would appeal to Great Lakes, history or technology geeks.
The special premiered on Sunday, and will play again today at 8 p.m. Tune in to get a unique view of the region.
