Aecom to lead on Thames Water's Counters Creek Suds retrofit pilot project

Aecom has been appointed as lead consultant by Thames Water on pioneering Counters Creek sustainable drainage systems (Suds) Retrofit Pilot Project. 

The pilot project is part of the wider Counters Creek Flood Alleviation Scheme, Thames Water’s largest sewer flooding alleviation scheme that is seeking to identify a long-term solution to sewer flooding in the west London area.

Through the Suds Retrofit Pilot Project, Thames Water is investigating how effective sustainable drainage systems can be in controlling surface water flows to combined sewers in the Counters Creek area. The study area consists of 15 selected streets and 15 adjacent control streets within the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. From these long-listed streets, Thames Water has specified that Aecom devises its own criteria and methodology to select a final three streets, as well as three associated control streets, for the Suds retrofit pilot trials.

Aecom will carry out hydraulic modelling, planning, Suds and landscape design, environmental consultancy, community consultation, highways liaison and traffic management, project management, construction supervision and compile a final report on the overall conduct of the trials and the performance of the Suds.
