"Built piecemeal over two millennia, this subterranean labyrinth of fresh-water aqueducts, reservoirs, cisterns, waste pools, and drainage culverts has secret nooks and crannies unknown even to Shimmerene's sanitation engineers."
―Shimmerene Waterworks Loading Screen[src]

The Shimmerene Waterworks is a sewer that appears underneath the city of Shimmerene in Summerset. In the basement of Kinlady Avinisse's Mansion is an entrance to the Waterworks titled "Broken Passage," but this cannot be used as an exit after dropping down into the Waterworks themselves. Another entrance to the Waterworks may be found on the northern coast of the city, at the docks.
