 #4 London sewerage system

Designed in the mid-19th Century by Joseph Bazalgette, the London sewerage system was the first modern environmental engineering project. Bazalgetter designed 450 miles of sewers, which drastically reduced the spread of disease in the city.

#5 Southern California Arrowhead Tunnels

The Arrowhead Tunnels in Southern California are built across 20 earthquake fault zones and they are designed to provide emergency water supplies to 15 million residents. This is a great example of environmental engineers having to devise entirely new drilling methods to ensure a safe, successful job.
