Is The London Drainage System Fit For Purpose ?

The London Drainage System

Is the current drainage system in London fit for purpose ?

In the early 19th century London’s River Thames was basically an open sewer, causing disastrous health consequences such as cholera epidemics.  But subsequent upgrade to the sewage system didn’t totally eradicate all raw waste from finding its way into the Thames.


As reported by the Environment Agency in London there is an estimated 39 million cubic meters of untreated sewage and waste being dumped into the Thames each year.

It has also been reported that each week, there is at least one spillover of sewage into the river. While the system isn’t perfect and is currently being addressed, it’s still much better than what Londoners had to deal with in the mid 19th century but it is definitely not at the standard it should be for health and safety requirements.
