          Hi Gary.

          The Board of Works would have control of the sewer system. The Board of Works was broken up into parishes or vestries. i.e City of London, Whitechapel, Mile End, etc.

          Under the Metropolis Management Act of 1855 the Board of Works was in charge of the main drainage of London and the construction of the Victoria, Chelsea and Albert Embankments. It was also in charge of maintaining the drainage systems and bridges over the Thames, the embankments, the testing of gas and gas meters and the Fire Brigade.

            Thanks, Jerry. I had a feeling you might know.
