What are some of the odd items the City has found in the sewer system?
Our operators have found many strange items in the sewer system over the years. Some of them include rusty firearms, a full six pack of beer, live snakes, wire bras, full sized towels, plastic containers, tree branches, sediment, baseballs, trashbags and lids.

These should never have found a way inside the sewer system! They cause maintenance nightmares and sewer backups.
