This free lecture on Tuesday 1st May 2012 explores the construction of Lee Valley’s artificial white water course.
White water is naturally found in steep, upland river systems and recreating this on the flat plain of the Lee Valley required the construction of an artificial, pumped, white water course. The lecture discusses the engineering of the venue looking at the components of the white water course, creating the white water and the development of the site masterplan. It looks in detail at the pumping station design and shows how lessons learnt from other developments have helped achieve a sustainable legacy.
