In action: The environmental legacy of the Thames Tideway Tunnel

Last updated: 2nd March 2019

The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a new major piece of infrastructure for London, capturing an average of 39 million tonnes of untreated sewage which currently enters the tidal River Thames every year. If no action is taken, this is anticipated to reach 70 million tonnes by 2020.

This three-page case study explores how Tideway is modernising a 150-year old sewer system, that was designed for a population less than half its current size, into a new thriving community hub that will reduce the amount of sewage and single-use plastic seeping into the River Thames.

The case study also features insight from ERG’s (Air Pollution Control) managing director Richard Hanson on how the company helped the project overcome a “unique odour challenge”.
