The Emisor Oriente Tunnel, also known as the Tunel Emisor Oriente, Eastern Discharge Tunnel, Eastern Wastewater Tunnel and East Issuing Tunnel, is a waste water treatment tunnel in Mexico City, Mexico. At 62,500 m it is the seventh longest tunnel on Earth. It was constructed between 2008 and 2014 using a tunnel boring machine.  It runs from Mexico City to the Atotonilco Waste Water Treatment Plant in Hidalgo state serving a population of some 20 million. It runs at a maximum depth of 200 metres below ground level and has a discharge capacity of 150 m3/s. This tunnel will help prevent flooding and serves as an alternate exit for the Emisor Central, another drainage tunnel.

The tunnel is constructed using a lining with segmental rings made of concrete and steel to prevent collapse.
