Our Falconbrook site is in the London Borough of Wandsworth next to York Gardens. The Falconbrook site is part of a Thames Water pumping station, where more than 700,000 cubic metres of untreated sewage flows into the River Thames on average each year. Our work to intercept these overflows into the new super sewer 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.
