To meet the needs of London’s growing population, we’re planning to upgrade Beckton Sewage Treatment Works in Jenkins Lane, London, IG11 0AD.
Beckton STW aerial
What’s the plan?
We’re proposing to…
Upgrade our inlet works to help remove more solids, grit and other debris from wastewater
Extend our Activated Sludge Plant (ASP)4 so that we can process more sludge and provide additional sludge plant capacity
Construct new blower house for ASP3 to promote more air for the treatment process
Install pumping stations to pump out more clean water during periods of high tideBeckton STW proposed upgrades
Why are we investing in Beckton Sewage Treatment Works?
Every day, we take away 4.4 billion litres of wastewater from 15 million people – enough to fill Wembley Stadium four times. As our population grows, we want to make sure that all of our wastewater treatment sites are equipped to meet demand.
We’re planning to increase the treatment capacity of Beckton Sewage Treatment Works, specifically the activated sludge process and the final settlement tanks so that we can process more wastewater in the future. We’ll also be investing in new equipment to upgrade our inlet works, which are what help us to remove solids, grit and other debris from your wastewater. Our proposed work will take place entirely within existing site boundaries from spring 2020.
