MONTREAL’S FIRST SEWER

Montreal’s first stone masonry sewer is the oldest infrastructure of this kind in Canada. It was built between 1832 and 1838 to convey wastewater underground and to solve the major health threat caused by the pollution of the Little Saint-Pierre river. Its design and construction were adapted from aqueduct techniques proven elsewhere in the world. The in-service life of 157 years is a testament to the masterful design and craftsmanship of the builders.
