New book about sewers of Brussels

The book Les entrailles de la ville: le charme discret des égouts bruxellois is the new publication of the Historia Bruxellae collection of the Museums of the City of Brussels. Discover how the history of the Senne and the sewers are intimately linked and why they still play a role in the water management of the city today. This publication is only available in French and Dutch.

Where is the Senne hiding today? What does the extensive network that discharges our waste water actually look like? Who are the people responsible for maintenance on a daily basis and in what circumstances do they have to work? How does the city centre (in the valley) escape from flooding? What challenges does water treatment face in the 21st century?

These and many other questions are discussed on 68 richly illustrated pages.

How to order?
