Dry Sewer.jpg

The dry sewer is a sewer system that can be reached from Dupont Circle. It is one path to Our Lady of Hope Hospital in the Reilly's Rangers quest.


The first area of the sewer is patrolled by Talon Company Mercs; the entry room contains two if the player enters from Dupont Circle. There is a grenade bouquet in the descending stairwell of the aforementioned room. If your explosive skill is high enough you can disarm it, or simply go around it. Proceeding into the sewer proper, you may find a battle between two more Talon Company mercs and two super mutants to the west, one of which has a minigun. The cul-de-sac from which the super mutants attack contains a number of medical supplies and a ham radio.

To the east is a dead-end maintenance room that holds a number of parts, as well as a chamber containing waste barrels. The chamber is filled by a cloud of flammable gas, which may be ignited with an energy or flaming weapon, or by firing a conventional weapon whilst inside the cloud.

Beyond the toxic waste is a super mutant, armed with a heavy weapon, and a fallen Mister Gutsy (or sentry bot at higher levels) near a super mutant corpse, unless the in which case you will find two dead super mutants and a Mister Gutsy or sentry bot waiting for you. Moving uphill from here leads to a dead end, while a maintenance door leads to the hospital's boiler room.

The boiler room is full of super mutants. From here there is a door to the hospital, as well as spare parts and number of medical devices.

Once cleared of enemies, you can use the mattress on the ground (not the ruined bed) at the far end of the tunnel to catch some sleep.

Notable loot

  • South of the main sewer junction is a utility room, and in the back of it there is a copy of Dean's Electronics on the shelf.


The Dry sewer appears only in Fallout 3.

Behind the scenes

On the entrance to the dry sewer from Dupont Circle the word "Maintenance" is misspelled on the door. The door says "Hospital Maintenace."
