London’s sewer network originates from the Victorian era. Before the system was initially installed sewage was simply discharged into the River Thames which, believe it or not, was also the main source of drinking water for the capitals residents. Evidently this regularly created wide spread outbreaks of disease and combined with ‘The Great Stink’ of 1858, lead to the government’s plan to take action.
Works started in 1859 when Joseph Bazalgette, a top engineer, was drafted in to create the London sewer network. It was initially planned, when work commenced, to serve two and a half million people, but after completion it was already serving four million. Since this time widespread work has been carried out expanding the existing system for the ever increasing population, most recently the Thames Tideway Tunnel.
London is now Europe’s most densely populated metropolis, with the greatest level of growth and some of the oldest infrastructure. Today’s network now serves over 8 million people and it’s estimated that it could easily stretch the length of the earth. Here at Hydro Cleansing we offer clients a comprehensive service, helping to ensure that our sewer network is more than capable of handling everything that is thrown at it.
