About this event

The London sewer system was built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette in the 19th century. Three major developments are underway in our generation. They are the opening of the Lee Tunnel in 2016, construction of the Thames Tideway Tunnel and construction of the Counters Creek Storm Relief Sewer.

We are at technological change moving from hard engineering solutions to environmentally sustainable alternatives. We hope to share with you the history of this remarkable sewer system, how it is evolving right now and thoughts on how we will develop it further into the future.

The event is free. The venue is a ten minute walk from Chelmsford railway station. Visitor's parking is available on campus from 4.30pm. Refreshments will be served from 6.00pm and the lecture will start at 6.30pm. Booking is not essential but helps us with planning.

The presentation will be given by Graeme Kasselman, Thames Water's North London Infrastructure Planning Manager.
