Sewer adoptions

We will consider applications to adopt new or existing sewers. If we agree to adopt your sewer, an adoption agreement must be entered into.

Once we have adopted your sewer, it will become part of our sewerage network and will be maintained by us.
If you would like us to adopt an existing sewer, you must submit plans and details of the sewers for initial consideration before we can make a decision on adoption of the sewer.

The adoption of new sewers remains optional. Should you decide to apply for adoption, the new sewers should be designed and constructed in accordance with Sewers for Adoption.

If you would like us to adopt a new public sewer we will firstly assess your application and a Section 104 Agreement must be made with us prior to construction of the sewer.  Sewerage contractors may be interested in our sewer adoption information pack.

To apply for the adoption of a new or existing sewer(s), please apply via InFlow using the link on the right hand side.
