You can reach certain parts of the Forbidden Underground Waterway right at the start of the game, however, for this particular demon you will need to progress through the main story.

Once you have unlocked the ability to drain the blood fountain, you can venture deeper into the Forbidden Underground Waterway. Head to the location marked on the image above.
