Deephams Sewage Works, located in Enfield in north east London, is the ninth largest sewage works in the UK. It treats sewage collected from within its catchment and discharges treated effluent into the Salmons Brook, a tributary of the River Lee, in accordance with a discharge consent set by the Environment Agency.

AMK, a joint venture between Aecom, Murphy and Kier, have been selected to design, construct and commission an upgrade to the existing operational works. In addition to delivering water quality improvements, the upgrade will cater for population growth within the catchment to at least 2031, and improve a considerable amount of the existing infrastructure at the sewage works, much of which is now over 50 years old and at the end of its useful life. It will provide sewage treatment for north London that is sustainable in the long term, is able to respond to the challenges of climate change, and will deliver significant reductions in odour emitted from the sewage works.

The site has completed construction of the new tanks and is now in the commissioning phase, ready for handover to the client in May 2018 (effluent stream).

Your visit will start with an introduction to the project. Through pictures and drone footage you will see how far the site has progressed since the main works started in 2014. The presentation will be followed by a guided tour of the site in a minibus, led by one of the AMK engineers or commissioning team members.

Refreshments will be provided on the day.
