Fishing!
You're probably right about some sort of underwater demolition.

I thought he was trying to get a hairball out of the plughole.
Seriously though, if he broke through into the sewer pipe wouldn't the canal drain into the pipe?

It was an old sewer pipe and not anymore in use. The new one is laying far away and much more deeper, because the channel have to made deeper for bigger ships. And that's the reason why old pipe have te be removed.

Here the video after the pipe is demolished and now is gona be removed with grab.
