Calven Lee — London City Reservoir
London City Reservoir — A new river inlet and Thames Water institution and research laboratory. By Calven Lee.
Thameside West, Royal Docks, London
The proposal’s key intention is to utilise the Royal Dock’s existing water infrastructure, and convert it into a fresh water reservoir.
The project aims to serve London’s increasingly growing population and the subsequent water demand on Thames Water Ltd.
A new institution and laboratory will be sited at the entry of a new water inlet from the River Lea. These will form a key piece in the wider residential masterplan of Thameside West, currently at planning stage with Newham Council.
The institute and water reservoir infrastructure will ensure London’s continual water supply for the city’s health and wellbeing.
