TQ0272 : Staines Reservoirs Aqueduct

taken 7 years ago, near to Staines, Surrey, Great Britain

Staines Reservoirs Aqueduct
Staines Reservoirs Aqueduct
The aqueduct was completed around 1900 to take water from the River Thames, about 300 metres upstream of Bell Weir Lock in TQ0172, about 3 kilometres downstream to the two new Staines Reservoirs. Sections of the aqueduct are in tunnels with siphons and some reaches such as this are open. Algal bloom is a summer problem in these open sections, although the water is obviously treated between the aqueduct and it becoming the public supply!
