Le canal Saint-Martin a été vidé pour être nettoyé pour enlever les déchets - de toutes sortes - jetés dedans , désenvaser et entretenir les écluses . Les poissons ont été pêchés et relachés en aval du canal .L'entretien dure 4 mois , jusqu'en avril.

The Saint-Martin canal was emptied to be cleaned, to remove waste - of all kinds - thrown inside, to remove the mud and to maintain locks. Fishes were fished and released downstream to the canal .The maintenance lasts 4 months, until April.

Cette mouette a trouvé un "coin-pause" inhabituel !

Aura River in Turku cleaned by volunteers in connection with an event. There you can find the same kind of stuff. Often, a couple of hours can be a truck load full. Can only say that too many idiots running free.

Wonderful that this waterway will be cleaned so that the fish can flourish again and the bird life will most definitely be very happy. A great documentary shot to show the ghastly state of the water canal.

I hope it becomes clean soon.

This is an interesting image. I think it is because it is not normally where you would find a shopping cart. It is too bad that people would throw things like that into the canal. The sea gull found a nice place to rest.
