Goulding Avenue Falls Drain

Water/Sewershed:
Chedoke Creek watershed
Sanitarium Road storm sewers

Construction Details:
Concrete arch outfall portal is fed by two small diameter RCPs.

This is a very small storm sewer that feeds a marginal waterfall coming off the west Mountain near the Chedoke Radial Trail. A reasonably nice, concrete arched outfall chamber leads to a pair of 1.5m RCPs that head off in opposite directions on Sanatorium Road or Goulding Avenue. We explored the one arm the length of a few access shafts, but that was pretty gruelling, and these days I wouldn't even push it that far.
