If London was full of larger-than-a-pillar-box things that emerged from a mini-Minuteman silo while the Strauss boom-boom bit was played, a simple grid over a street-level catchment tank would be sufficient, and nature would take care of the rest.

Completely OT, I was once told that respectable women did not wear lower underwear until late in the 19th century, and one advantage of voluminous skirts was that a leak could be taken over the gully in the street without inconveniencing anybody. In some ways, women's public toilets were a step backwards for female emancipation.
