Rev.K: River = sewer?

Some of them are combined storm run-off & actual sewage lines, others are actual rivers captured, to allow development above.  Toronto has begun to separate the storm sewers from the sewage sewers, but that is going to be a long process...
I wouldn't go swimming in any of the above.

Lighting those with strobes must have been fun.

If you ever look at older maps of bigger cities in any country, you can see that they've "developed" most of the smaller waterways around them into sewer channels when the city expanded. There is a lot of history beneath your feet, and some of it is sort of interesting.

So culverts are now "underground rivers". 
What are we calling these now then?

I'm cool with these pictures. In fact, I think they're fascinating. Yesterday's shots of the NYC subway? Insta-vertigo.

I love stuff like this. You can tell a lot about a city by what they do with their waste.

Came here to say this. Dook tube =/= river. Still, the pictures were fascinating.

I'm getting a kick out of this because my house discharges into a large percentage of those photos.

Noticed a link that lets you explore Hamilton's sewers. I thought this already existed, it's called Google Street View.

/I kid
//Hamilton is actually pretty nice
