Tomorrow afternoon I'll be venturing below ground level at Hammersmith sewage pumping station, the very heart of Beelzebub himself. (Or if not the heart, his large intestine, at least).

In case I don't return, here are a couple of recent accounts of what's in store:

If anyone has any pertinent questions they'd like me to ask, please post here.

Is there a way of pumping the stuff back whence it came?

And if not - could the necessary works to enable this be completed quicker & more cheaply than building the tunnel? ;-)

Alright Ed,
Ask Thames water, if it would be possible for their shareholders to forgo the next ten years bonuses and pay towards the clean up needed after their disgraceful dumping.

Here's the write-up on that day by Michael Kavanagh, I'm still only about half-way through mine, at least I get a passing mention here:
