TQ3680 : Ratcliffe CSO outfall

taken 4 years ago, near to Stepney, Tower Hamlets, Great Britain

Ratcliffe CSO outfall
Ratcliffe CSO outfall
This circular brick culvert (estimated at 8 feet diameter using the couple on the balcony as a guide) discharges to the north side of the Thames below high tide level, near the western end of Horseferry Road. It is known as the Ratcliffe CSO (combined sewer overflow). The proposed Thames Tideway Tunnel (deep interceptor sewer) will leave the route of the river near here, but Ratcliffe CSO is not one of the ones being intercepted, as statistics showed it did not operate at all in 2011 and is therefore classified as of low environmental impact.
