Thames Investigates SuDS Retrofit

24th June, 2012

Thames Water are to conduct a benchmark pilot study called the Counters Creek sustainable drainage systems (SuDS) retrofit project, with a view to reducing the flood risk in London and helping to enhance the streetscape. The project is part of the Counters Creek Flood Alleviation Scheme, which is Thames Water’s largest sewer flooding alleviation program. The aims are to identify a long-term solution to sewer flooding in the western London area. Thames have appointed AECOM as lead consultant who's remit is to investigate how effective sustainable drainage systems will be in controlling surface water flows to combined sewers in the area. The area being used for the study consists of 15 selected streets and 15 adjacent control streets.

Shirel Steadman, AECOM Project Director, Water, said: “We are delighted to be able to apply AECOM’s SuDS research and our integrated approach to water-sensitive urban design to help Thames Water identify a lasting solution for a potential wider rollout across London.”
