Population growth and the weakness of a combined sewerage system meant that by the late 20th century the condition of river Thames was under scrutiny for contravention of the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive. The solution, a 7.2 m diameter by 25 km long deep storage tunnel costing over £4bn is the largest and most complex sewerage project undertaken in the UK for over a century. This presentation will look at the recent history of the Thames, the investigation, planning and financing of the project and the current status of construction work.
