Stratford’s Olympic gardens watered by recycled sewage
PUBLISHED: 06:30 08 December 2011
Sewage is being recycled into non-drinkable water and irrigating lawns and gardens at the London 2012 Olympic Park, Stratford, following the opening of a £7m recycling plant at Old Ford, Bow, the biggest “black water” treatment works in Britain.
Jointly-funded by Thames Water and the Olympic Delivery Authority, the treated water will also be used for flushing toilets at the Olympic venues.
