"Hardly had Bruneseau crossed the first articulations
of that subterranean network, when eight laborers out
of the twenty refused to go any further."

( Victor Hugo The Intestine of Leviathan )

Encounters with a sewerman and his trade:

As the node of the network, the Museum of Sewers in Paris is also an immersive visit to an operating location, exhibiting operational facilities in which teams of men and women work continuously, as they face significant risks. We offer guided tours for groups. For approximately 1 h, we present the history and construction of the Parisian sewers, their opération, the missions of the sewermen, the water and waste treatment and the animals that live in the sewers.
