After a long hiatus, uedamien and I are back in the swing of things. This thread is going to be the new and improved unofficial journal of sorts. Here's a link to the old one from a few years back, http://www.uer.ca/...d=1&threadid=81610

I'm not a word man, so uedamien will have to pick up the slack on that end.


(Bussey Brook, uedamien and I)


(Upper SBC, Rozzie Junction)


(Lower Rozzie)


(SBC, Boat Chamber / Cleanout)


(SBC, Goldsmith Junction 2)


(SBC, Goldsmith Junction 1)


(Goldsmith)


(Goldsmith)

... much more to come.

SBC or Stony Brook Conduit

As I mentioned in the old Boston Drain thread, the SBC is to date the largest drain in Boston that we have read about and explored. Stretching more or less 7 miles from it's inlet in Hyde Park to its outfall in the Back Bay Fens. It is fed by many small brooks, and some larger ones. Goldsmith Brook (Arnold Gold), The Roslindale Branch (Rozzie Branch), Bussey Brook, and The Canterbury Brook (Canterbury Branch) are a few of the larger ones we've encountered so far. We first explored The SBC back in December of 2009 and up until that point all the drains we'd found were no more than 6 or 7ft tall. So that initial glimpse of a tunnel approx 12ft wide by 17ft tall was quite awe inspiring.

Our first time into SBC was through Bussey Brook. Bussey Brook used to end in a set of steps that dropped into a short stretch of tunnel that met with Stony. But in the late 1980s with the creation of the southwest corridor the entire run of Bussey had to be lowered. From it's inlet to where it meets that short original stretch, it has been replaced with twin 5ft RCP.

Sometime around 2010 Fox25 news did a report on Stony Brook and I grabbed these historic pictures from their online version of the story.








Now for a couple originals:

This is that junction now


and one looking down stream from the junction

love boston drainage.
cant wait to see you two put things up on the regular!
have you guys used the super old manhole entry into stony brook? i gave silo the exact spot, use it when hes over? will and i found it a few years ago. we also popped a manhole next to a warehouse id slept at a few nights, will said "ive researched this sewer, havent gotten into it yet, im almost certain that is it" (with us looking down to an obviously human sized brick tunnel down the bottom of the shaft)

...will look at maps next time im on a computer and send silo the co-ords

Some severely opulent brick here. The Stony Brook Conduit looks monstrous!
