Hammersmith Pumping Station is an existing Thames Water site in a residential part of west London. We’re working closely with our neighbours here to ensure the impact of our work is limited. Our work to ‘intercept’ the sewage overflows from this site will reduce discharges by more than 95 per cent and play a key role in cleaning up the River Thames.

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.
