Sewers and wastewater
Apply for wastewater services
Apply and pay for our wastewater services. This includes adopting an existing or new sewer, building over or near to a sewer, diverting a sewer and more.
Using a self-lay provider
Self-lay providers could offer a cost and time effective solution for your construction programme.
Connecting to a sewer
Find out timescales, charges and other information about connecting your development to our public sewerage system.
If you need to dewater sites, remove groundwater, or discharge any liquid waste from construction work, you’ll need to apply for consent from our Trade Effluent Team.
Building over or near a sewer
Apply to us if you plan to build over or within three metres of a public sewer.
Adopting a new or existing sewer
Speak to us about adopting a sewer or a pumping station, prior to construction.
Diverting or closing a sewer
If you need to alter or remove a public sewer on your development site, you can apply for a diversion.
Requisitioning a sewer
Your development may have no drainage to an existing public sewer because third party land is in the way. In this case, we can provide both a foul and surface water sewer to serve the site.
