The Chemistry Centre, London W1J 0BA
In London major trunk mains, commissioned by Water Companies who ceased trading over 100 years ago, operate alongside modern assets such the Thames Water Ring Main commissioned in the 1990’s. Hence legacy plays an important part in way the current supply system operates. But London’s water supply has a rich and interesting history that goes back, not just a hundred, but almost 2,000 years to when the Romans originally founded the city.
Rob's talk will focus on key people who have played a part in providing water to the capital, plus key decisions and innovations where London has led the industry. He will also tell people places where they can visit to find out more.
Rob Casey has previously given presentations on the history of London's water supply to local societies, institutions and at various water conferences.
