PIZZAGATE | NEW TUNNEL DISCOVERY. Connects At Least 4 Of Alefantis's Properties

in #pizzagate5 years ago (edited)

"As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without."

There are miles of old abandoned water tunnels directly under a lot of Alefantis's properties of interest. The picture above is of workmen in one of the tunnels circa 1900s.
First off there is a bit of background on the tunnels then there's a map outlining all the properties of interest in relation to the tunnel network. I've also included examples of some of the tunnels discovered.


The Washington Aqueduct

The Washington Aqueduct, managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, provides wholesale water treatment services to DC Water and its partners in Northern Virginia, Arlington County and Falls Church. - DC Water

The Origin of Washington's Water Supply ? Architect of the Capital

  • Built in 1864 by Montgomery Meigs and the Army Corps of Engineers.
  • The Washington Aqueduct forms the central node in DC's water infrastructure.
  • Water splits into a set of parallel conduits and is gravity fed 9 miles from Great Falls, Maryland to Dalecarlia Reservoir.

Precast conduit segments for the Washington Aqueduct.

  • Water continues under Reservoir Road near Georgetown Reservoir and Glover Archibald Park.

  • The aqueduct crosses Rock Creek Valley inside the Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge structurally supported by two 48-inch (122cm) arching water pipes.

  • The conduits then begin to branch out in a network of smaller and smaller pipes that eventually connect with individual houses.

  • In total 12 miles of conduit, 11 tunnels, 6 bridges, pump stations, pipelines, and 2 reservoirs were built. - National Park Service

Note that just before the aqueduct crosses Rock Creek it branches off left into Georgetown.

  • In the mid-1920's a second conduit was added to increase the capacity of the system - National Park Service

The conduit is the largest structure of the water system. It stretches almost 12 miles downriver from the intake at Great Falls to the Georgetown Reservoir. The circular tube, built of brick, stone and mortar, is 9 feet in diameter. It was constructed by tunneling and by deep rock cuts. A road was built parallel to the conduit to facilitate cleaning repairs and inspections. The road was originally named Conduit Road, today it is MacArthur Boulevard.

This short documentary talks about only 1 conduit used at a time. We only see the conduit down as far as Georgetown Reservoir.

This documentary give a good insight into the what the tunnels look like under DC.



The Washington City (Lydecker) Tunnel

The Washington (Lydecker) Tunnel, completed in 1901 by the Army Corps of Engineers, is up to 10 meters in diameter and runs 4 miles from Georgetown Reservoir to McMillain Reservoir. Shortly after in 1926 a second tunnel was dug beside it.

The Lydecker Tunnel Fiasco | Architect of the Capital

  • Within a decade the District’s population had increased by 75% and it was clear that a larger system was necessary.
  • The Army Corps of Engineers’ proposed the McMillan reservoir NE Washington
  • In 1882 Major Garret Lydecker started building a 4 mile long tunnel connecting the new McMillan Reservoir (east) with the existing Georgetown Reservoir (west).
  • The project was marred in corruption. Eventually Lydecker received a court-martialed for his role in the fiasco and was banished to the Rocky Mountains.

The Washington Post describes the reality: “A committee of experts went through the tunnel and found that instead of a solid lining, thousands and thousands of feet of the tunnel contained nothing more than a brick arch, with spaces between the sides and the top of the arch and the original rock large enough to drive a coach through.”

  • The Army Corps of Engineers finished the tunnel by 1901

This map shows the proposed route of the Washington Tunnel.

The Army Corps added the McMillan Park Reservoir and the Washington City Tunnel (10 meters in diameter and 4 miles long) between 1882 and 1902.

A second tunnel paralleling the original was completed in 1926 which allowed the Lydecker Tunnel to be periodically closed for routine maintenance without noticeably interrupting water service.

Configuration of the Bedrock Surface of the District of Columbia and Vicinity |

The diagram below shows a cross section of the tunnel. There are several vertical air shafts.

Original, p.31 | Reference

In the Widows Mite air shaft just north of Wyoming Avenue, near the line of Twenty-second Street, the official section shows a capping of "clay and sand 30 feet thick" underlain by 35 feet of "clay," but this is undoubtedly a mistake, as the gneiss has been revealed by many cellars in this vicinity under only a few feet of terrace gravel and sand. In the air shaft on the highest part of the ridge near the corner of Sand Thirty-fifth Streets the blueprint of the tunnel section shows 42 feet of "clay" lying on "soft rock" at a depth of 158.7 feet, but in fact the rotted bedrock out-cropping extensively in that area is overlain by very thin remnants of terrace gravel at 195 feet above sea level. Probably the clay referred to is mostly rctten rock.


Merging the two maps produced this.

2 newspapers refer to 2 different addresses below:

1 - 1510 P 21st Street - Greater greater Washington

2 - 1512 P 21st St - Washington Post

In the articles they talk about these various locations:

Workmen found a tunnel on P Street when digging foundations for Pelham Courts Luxury Appartment block Now Hotel Palomar

Pelham Courts Apartment block/Hotel Palomar 2121 P St, NW

while working on the foundation for the luxurious Pelham Courts apartments in Dupont Circle, workers made an unusual discovery: "Workmen find tunnel The passage is more than 100 feet long. (Washington Post, 5/19/1917)"
So do the tunnels themselves, which fan out as far as 200 feet behind his old Dupont Circle home, though they're now sealed with concrete.
The Pelham Courts of Dupont Circle are long gone, and the property now houses the Hotel Palomar. Reference

    Tunnel appeared Behind Pelham Courts

“Washington was alive with stories of mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure.” (Post, 3/4/1942)
While driving behind Pelham Courts in mid-September of 1924, a truck’s tires sank into the ground, revealing the entrance to a hidden underground shaft. Reference



I conclude from my research there are many tunnels under Washington DC. The ones outlined above are ones we know about. Some are as old as 1850s. As demand for water increased they built new tunnels and laid new pipes. The older tunnels being left to decay.
Interestingly here are 4 properties that sit directly on top of the old aqueduct tunnels. Most of the properties in Washington sit above some form of a tunnel or another but it seemed quite a coincidence that the only map I could find of the aqueduct system of tunnels was from 1900s and Alefanis etc have properties either very close or right on top of them. The articles point out the tunnels aren't that far from the surface so digging down from any building wouldn't be a great challenge. You would just need to know where to dig.



I am a GIS professional and I must compliment your work. When this story 1st broke I attempted to create a similar map. You have done far more research, I am thoroughly impressed. Interesting results indeed.

I won't lie, I had to do a quick internet search from GIS professional.

Thank you. It means a lot coming from someone like you with your skills. Pretty creepy how it all adds up.

Oops wrong place. Please, disregard and look further down.

Well, that is about all the crappy things that some of these tunnels have seen with innocent children suffering under the cruelty of pedophiles. It's just me looking at the tags and blowing off steem. If this offends you I will change it.

No, no, that's ok. I'm aware of the word pedobear. I just didn't know how exactly it related to the post. Now I do. Don't worry, me too I put out stuff sometimes that make more or less immediate and complete sense (even to my own self), but that others won't necessarily get right away or at all. It even gets me into trouble from time to time, because we as human often tend to replace meaning with intent when we face something we don't fully understand. Am I making sense? lol

Yes you are correct about getting in trouble with people. We all have our different experiences and perspectives.. I usually put words with my gifs but this is a subject that is too close to me and I find pictures are a lot easier then a raging tangent. Thank you for understanding and being patient. It's a good thing you took the time to ask. Most people shake their heads and go onto something else.

Excellent post! Thank you and REsharing!
Time for a little of oue OWN Underground revelations.

Great historical pics. Upvoted and Followed. Cheers

Your post is beautiful and historically interesting, but most of the references for the addresses you share ain't worth much. Radaris, for example, is not a viable source of information. You are not using the proper ressource to find the actual owner of the properties you put out. Use the following public web site (like I did a while back to verify the claims of Yoichi Shimatsu) and you'll see there is no correspondence between what the private web sites tell (might be a collection of all the adresses Alefantis ever lived at, liked someone suggested was the case for him in a Radaris review) and the official names of the proprietors.

Let's take the first address:
3334 N ST NW; WASHINGTON DC 20007 is owned by a guy name William B. Broydrick

Prove to me Alefantis had no part in any of these tunnel properties and I will stop tweeting.

I never cared for Twitter because I don't know how to truly express myself under 140 characters. Plus, your own tweets are none of my business. And, I can't proove anything of that sort.

Please remove your memes from my replies timeline. Before you ask for a reason. They are childish. Thank you.

Thanks for all of the research. I upvoted, but couldn't resteem. I guess a post can't be resteemed after so many days?
