BecktonSewage Treatment Works (STW) in the London borough of Newham is currently one of Europe’s largest, treating the waste of 3.5 million people. Thames Water is undertaking a £190m upgrade and expansion of the works to treat sewage to a higher standard and increase the facility’s treatment capacity to a population equivalent of 3.9 million. The project forms part of the London Tideway Improvements programme, which is made up of three major engineering schemes to help stop sewer overflows and improve water quality in the River Thames. Thisprogramme includes upgrading London’s five major sewage works, and construction of the Lee Tunnel and proposed Thames Tunnel, which are designed to prevent pollution entering the Thames from 35 sewer overflow points along the river.
