Beckton Sewage Treatment Works

Beckton Sewage Treatment Works is an operational Thames Water sewage treatment works site and is the largest sewage treatment works in Europe. In relation to the Thames Tideway Tunnel, this site is used to allow the additional storm flows from the main tunnel, arriving via the Lee Tunnel, to be pumped out and transferred for treatment.

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.
