New Thames Tunnel option under consideration

Three adjacent plots of land facing the river in Fulham are under consideration by Thames Water as an alternative to using part of Barn Elms Playing Fields for construction of the Thames Tunnel.
Following a review of all potential sites and tunnelling strategy after phase one public consultation – Whiffin Wharf, Hurlingham Wharf and Carnwath Business Park – which were previously considered too small - could now be a viable option viable option for constructing the project, often dubbed the ‘Supersewer’.

The project is urgently needed to help tackle the 39 million tonnes of untreated sewage which overflows into the River Thames in an average year, when London's Victorian sewerage network becomes overloaded.

Phil Stride, Head of London Tideway Tunnels at Thames Water, said:
"As we refine the options for the tunnel, the size and potential locations for construction sites are subject to change. We are also listening and responding to feedback received to date.

"Both options have their advantages and disadvantages.

"Unlike Barn Elms Playing Fields, Carnwath Road Riverside is brownfield, not greenfield, and is already designated for regeneration or industrial use. It is not important for recreation, would not require any tree felling and is not Metropolitan Open Land. The site’s existing jetty, combined with the greater width of the river at this point, would also allow us to use fewer, larger barges to remove soil excavated during construction of the main tunnel and bring in materials.

"On the other hand, more residents and businesses would be directly affected at Carnwath Road Riverside than at Barn Elms Playing Fields. Using Carnwath Road Riverside for the construction period would potentially also be in conflict with Hammersmith and Fulham Council’s own plans to regenerate the area.

"I must stress that we have not discounted Barn Elms Playing Fields as a possible major construction site for the Thames Tunnel. Before we make any final decisions, we will need to carefully evaluate the suitability of the Carnwath Road site in more detail and potential impacts on nearby residential properties and businesses."

Thames Water has arranged two drop-in sessions so Carnwath Road locals can find out more and raise any concerns with the project team. These will be held at Hurlingham and Chelsea Secondary School, Peterborough Road, SW6 3ED on Wednesday 6 April and Thursday 7 April from 4pm until 8pm.

In any event there will still need to be a construction site in or near Barn Elms Playing Fields to intercept the West Putney Combined Sewer Overflow, which discharges sewage into the nearby Beverley Brook.

The project team will now carry out technical assessments to understand the suitability of the Carnwath Road sites. The next phase of consultation, due to start in September 2011, will provide an opportunity for the public to comment on the revised preferred scheme and sites for the whole project, before they are finalised.

Thames Water is due to publish its feedback report on the first phase of the public consultation by early April. During the consultation more than 4,750 people attended 25 public exhibitions and 3085 people submitted formal feedback. Thames Water also attended over 50 other public meetings to discuss the project with local communities who might be affected.

Just wanted to bring this up again as this time of year can show exactly why we need the tunnel to be built.

In 2004 after a long dry spell, an large amount of rain fall caused a huge fish kill. Let's hope we never see the like again but we discussed last week, the potential risk is there.

News from 2004

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1468681/100000-fish-die-as-storms-cause-Thames-pollution.html

There are many other incidents of this type

The EA are more equipped now to get out with bubbler boats and ready with Hydrogen peroxide. Water quality is constantly monitored including by Thames Water.

I thoughts RATS was the acronym for Rowers Against Thames Sewage, rather cynical of the NIMBYs to pinch it for Residents Against Thames Sewer.

I took these photo's this afternoon from the towpath opposite Isleworth Ait.
A series of strange disturbances in the surface of the water. Are these the submerged Mogden outlets?

Seems like there is an issue with local press reporting of the Tunnel sites

Sitting here on nights and almost spat out my sandwich after reading a comment in this report.

http://hfconservatives.typepad.com/residents_first/2011/06/super-sewer-costs-set-to-skyrocket-despite-government-pressure.html

'The news comes just days after the water company also revealed that as little as 5 percent of the fluid that flows into the river is sewage and residents questioned whether the ‘fish-kills’ that Thames Water trumpeted earlier this month were really as bad as reported.'

They word 'trumpeted' , like it was something good? Time for these people to wake up an smell the coffee, yes many thousands of fish were killed, staggering.

Rant over, back to work.

just political fillybustering m8
however all the info is issued by thames water, so people are entitled to doubt it

but to quote a pensioner of 70 years of age, worried about water poverty, is clutching at straws
and to argue about percentages of the constituents is akin to deciding whether to drink bleach or toilet cleaner

we need to get pro-active with these NIMBYS

strange how they dont voice the opinions of rowers or anglers

Funny how the erstwhile msss pateman, whilst trying to get the works done in barn elms, has missed out the most obvious site, namely the "Hurlingham Club", of course she has, woud,nt want to upset her own kind.
She does,nt come from "Sands End", just another wannabee yuppie who cant afford to live in Chelsea.
I was born and raised on Carnwath rd and although i now live upstream, i,ve always lived next to the river and the river and rats go hand in hand, if you dont like rats, move. Maybe she should aim her grievances towards the powers that be and complain about the amount of domestic rubbish what is being dumped in the river, rats love rubbish.
If they dont build the sewer there, they will put up more tower blocks, (foreign owned), and they are creeping further and further upstream, poor little josh will have to breath in more petrol fumes from the increased traffic they bring. Has she thought of that?
For nimby,s read, "oh! golly gosh! my photos in the local press, will have to have a dinner party Darling.

For anyone who hasn't got time to read that, check this fact out from the document....

Just Hammersmith's pumping station alone pumped raw sewage into the river for 8 hours, at a rate of 1 builders skip-full every 2 seconds :face:
