Designing a public sewer

When designing an adoptable sewer:


Any new sewer must be designed and constructed to an adoptable standard before we can take responsibility for it.


You may use our own standard adoptable sewerage detail in your sewer adoptions, diversion or connection submission. 

Please refer to our standard adoptable sewer detail diagrams and guidance notes below for further guidance.

Local practices
