Visited one of Micro's many drains in his Mississauga catalogue. Unfortunately, many systems in Toronto's suburban neighbour to the West are pretty uneventful even though they might look promising from the outfall. This one's ironically named "Mississauga Surprise". Even though it's a spacious 2.5m pipe, there's virtually nothing to see until a small junction about 800m towards the inlet. Oh well, it gave me a good opportunity to try out some shots with my external flash.
The outfall was rather deep and had lots of scum floating around the grate, waiting to be sent to the creek.
First access chamber.
After the first curve at the outfall, the pipe goes straight for quite a while.
The main pipe leads to the damaged inlet

A very small slide
The water along the splashpad was all swirly and multi-coloured.
