Small sewer is a small subterranean sewage treatment area[1] in Fallout 3.


The sewer is a small underground area located to the south-east of the Arlington Library and is divided into three levels, with two guard rooms and a locked storage room on the bottom level. The storage room can be accessed by a terminal and contains a safe, an armor crate and two ammunition boxes. The sewer also contains several hostile raiders of varying levels.

Notable loot


  • The sewer does not appear on the main map as a location, but the entrance is clearly marked as "sewer" on the local map. The entrance is a single door at the bottom of a flight of steps.
  • The easiest way to locate this area is to fast-travel to the Arlington Library, head south to the Talon Company outpost, before finally heading directly east. Alternatively, if the Point Lookout DLC is installed, fast-travel to the Riverboat Landing and head west; although you might observe Talon soldiers at the far end of the street, you should be able to reach the sewer without being spotted and engaged.
  • Despite the fact it's inhabited by raiders, there aren't any bodies hanging or graffiti on the walls; it looks to be almost intact, apart from some fallen shelves and boxes.
  • The raiders here re-spawn every 3 in-game days.


The Small Sewer appears only in Fallout 3.
