Sewer Connection - What is required?

Applying and carrying out a sewer connection is a tortuous process with many steps involved.

To simplify this we have broken the process down into several steps.
1. Apply to the local Water Authority for a connection

This will involve drawings, postcode or grid reference and method statements plus a fee payable.

2. Permission from the local Highways Authority to enter highway (whether road, footpath or verge)

This will require:-
- Traffic Management Proposals
- Supervisors and Operatives NRSWA Accreditation
- £10m Public Liability Insurance
- Permission from the relevant Waste Water Authority for the connection
- Evidence of a search to indicate the presence or not of statutory undertakers plant and equipment

3. A Service Search

This involves writing to all of the likely Statutory Authorities to ask them to examine their databases and indicate whether or not their equipment is present in the area. Some undertakers charge for this service - £50 per charging Authority is a good budgetary figure.

All of the above is time consuming, frustrating and requires constant chasing.
The minimum suggested time scale for this is 4 weeks, but in practise most Highway Authorities take longer.
