Adoption of new sewers or pumping stations

Banner image

If your development is going to be connected to our sewerage system, you’ll need to lay the on-site drains and sewers.

Sewers and pumping stations must be built in accordance with the current publication Sewers for Adoption 6th edition addendums.

We promote the use of a Section 104 agreement, (Water Industry Act 1991) for the adoption of new sewers and waste water pumping stations that are to be built as part of new developments. If you’d like us to adopt these, you’ll need to complete our S104 aid to making a sewer adoption.

As part of this application, you’ll also need to apply for a Sewer Connection (under Section 106 of the Water Industry Act 1991), if you wish to connect to our existing asset.

Pumping stations Each technical submission for proposed adoptable pumping stations is reviewed against the standards: Sewers for adoption 7th Edition Sewers for adoption 6th edition – addendums

When we review your proposal, this is the standards that we’ll use, even if you are submitting the rest of your gravity network under Sewers for Adoption 6th edition.
