Near the Pont de l'Alma, opposite the 93, Orsay embankment, a museum is devoted to the sewers of Paris and its workers.
King Philippe Auguste (end of XIIth century-early XIIIth century) was the first to set up an evacuation network (the recently paved streets had a channel at the middle), but it's not until 1850 that Paris got a full water distribution network and sewage system.
