Footbridge over Waterworks River at the Olympic Park
Waterworks River is an artificial channel, cut for the Stratford Waterworks (later purchased by the East London Waterworks Company) in 1743, from the Old River Lee channel (above Old Ford Lock), to supply a reservoir at Saynes Mill, Stratford. It was widened to 100 feet in the 1930s as part of a project to prevent flooding in Stratford.

The river is one of the Bow Back Rivers (LinkExternal link Canal & River Trust) that flow into the Bow Creek part of the River Lea, which in turn flows into the River Thames.
