Environmental Forum will provide information and opportunity to ask questions
Environmental Forum 23rd February
Would you like to know what it being done about west London’s sewer and treatment plant problems? The Environmental Forum will provide information on what is happening and an opportunity to ask questions of the Thames Water Team managing the project.
The proposed Thames Tunnel will capture the flows of storm sewage from 34 sewer overflow points along the River Thames.
About the tunnel
The tunnel will run approximately 32 kilometres (20 miles) through the heart of London, and up to 75 metres beneath the River Thames, broadly following the path of the river.
Its precise route, including the starting point in the west of the city, has still to be determined, but will end at Beckton Sewage Treatment Works.
Thames Water are in the process of speaking with the relevant authorities about the route of the tunnel and the process for selecting works sites.
No tunnel entrance and exit sites outside existing Thames Water sites have been selected. However the existing 34 sewer overflow points will need to be connected to the tunnel.
