Thames Water’s Acton Storm Pumping Station is located in the London borough of Ealing. The surrounding area is predominantly residential and mixed use buildings with the nearest properties located adjacent to the northeast boundary of the site on Canham Road and Warple Way.
Mogden Sewage Treatment Works is the second largest in the UK. It was built between 1931 and 1935 at a cost of £1.7m and covers an area of 55 hectares. Over half of the power used by the plant is renewable energy that has been generated on site as part of the sewage treatment process. The works serves around 2.1 million people, and some of the wastewater has travelled over 20 miles by the time it reaches Mogden.
