Pre-drilled Pier by Hubbell

The Atlas Resistance® Pier by Hubbell is a manufactured, two-stage product designed specifically to produce structural support strength.

As London’s population has doubled from 4 million in the 1860s to 8 million and counting by 2015, the old Victorian sewers, although in excellent condition, cannot handle the huge amount of waste anymore. As a result, even a few millimeters of rain are enough for the system to exceed its capacity and about 1.2 million tons of untreated sewage waste are dumped straight into the River Thames each year.
