Before just a few days ago the last time the Paris Canal was drained was in 2001. Due to clogging officials and city workers have drained three miles of the Canal – Saint Martin in order help clear flow systems.
According to PEOPLE, once the water was drained to a certain level about 4.5 tons of fish were transported to another part of the canal. The real shock came to workers when all of the water was gone and the floor level was revealed. 40 tons of junk was scavenged through and removed, including bicycles, safes, gold coins, a toilet bowl, wheelchairs, motorcycles, a gun, and even two shells from World War I.
