Measure of Emptiness
Like Pilgrimage to the west, the Garrison Creek East Branch Storm Trunk Sewer was the product of a 25-year programme of sewer renewal initiated in 1965 by Commissioner of Works R.M. Bremner. Built to avoid a variety of existing underground infrastructure, the East Branch Storm Trunk is deeper than just about any other storm sewer in Toronto, running at a consistent depth several stories underground until it reaches the rail corridor south of Front Street.
