Trip Report Draining the Canal Saint Martin in Paris

Jump to last reply

The Canal Saint Martin gets emptied and cleaned out every 15 years or so (last time was the winter of 2001-2002), and the cleaning process began again this week. The water is drained lock by lock from Place de la Bataille de Stalingrad to Bastille and this morning only the first lock had been emptied, but it was already revealing the bicycle graveyard for which Vélibs have paid a very heavy price. I will add more photos to my report about it soon, but here is how it looked on the first day of draining: http://tinyurl.com/gvq7wwl

The cleaning and repair work will take three months, and the canal will open again at the beginning of April.
