Abbey Mills Pumping Station is an existing Thames Water pumping station site. The site will be used to receive the tunnel from Chambers Wharf and connect to the Lee Tunnel, which will transfer sewage flows to Beckton Sewage Treatment Works.

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.
