At Falconbrook Pumping Station, more than 700,000 cubic metres of raw, untreated sewage spills into the River Thames on average each year (of which 180 tonnes is estimated to be sewage-derived litter). Our work to intercept these overflows will reduce this amount by around 94 per cent.

Reconnecting London with the River Thames 

London relies on a 150-year-old sewer system built for a population less than half its current size. As a result, millions of tonnes of raw sewage spills, untreated, into the River Thames each year. 

That’s where we come in.  

We’re building a 25km Super Sewer under the Thames to intercept those nasty spills and clean up our river for the good of the city, its wildlife and you.
