Looking out into the harbour, from the mouth of Montreal's Zebra drain

Drains and Sewers in Other Places

There are of course walkable storm drains and sewers in almost every city of a reasonable size, and even in many smaller towns as well. In the past this website has featured detailed descriptions of adventures in storm sewers in Burlington, St. Catharines, Fenelon Falls, Niagara Falls, Mississauga and Ottawa. For now, those pages are offline, although it is my intention to revist some of those places in the future. In the meantime, I will post some photographs here from Montreal, Ottawa, and Victoria.
