A healthier future for East London’s rivers – three big solutions

The next stage of the 'Love the Lea' project has been launched by Thames 21 to reduce water pollution in East London's rivers. The project has identified three solutions for action, which include:


1. A comprehensive network of green drainage systems across North East London – to extend the life of the Deephams Sewage Treatment Works upgrade.


2. Building Control Departments in Local Authorities and approved inspectors to regulate and prevent misconnections where waste water from homes pollutes local rivers.


3. Reduce road run-off that sees rivers poisoned with chemicals and dirt every time it rains by building rain gardens in unused car parking spaces and roadside verges.
