Sewers signify putrid conditions, perhaps the “rotting” remains of old circumstances or relationships.
Waste also fertilizes and thus can signify regeneration. Perhaps the dreamer needs to eliminate noxious conditions or ideas before beginning new endeavors.

Sewers involve darkness and dirt.
Dreaming of them, therefore, predicts arguments and reprehensible actions by the people around you.
If valuables appear in the sewer it means that someone could get you in trouble by questioning whether something really belongs to you.

A sewer is a subterranean construct designed to take waste away. In this way, it symbolically connects to the desire for unwanted material to be easily removed and kept out of sight.

A sewer is primarily under the surface and also connects with elements of life that are generally thought of as repulsive, so this is a shadow symbol. If your dream takes place in a sewer, you are exploring the underbelly of your psyche and considering the more disowned parts of yourself. Such a dream may be reflecting a desire to be free of things you prefer not to look at. There is an added meaning to sewers from the notion that through them, you could move from one area to another without being seen, as long as you were willing to navigate the underbelly of your psyche.
