Connect to the sewer network

You will need to apply to connect your new or existing property to our public sewers.

This is because we need to assess the proposed connection for its impact on the network and ensure that will it not cause problems, flooding or pollution, which could affect our existing customers.

We will assess and approve your sewer connection application however, it will be your responsibility to employ a contractor to complete the works. See our sewerage contractors page for more information.

We will then inspect the works to see if they meet the necessary standards. We can do this by either visiting your site in person or by using video technology. Using video technology, our Anglian Water representative will be able to be present onsite without physically being there! 

Please note: A sewerage infrastructure charge will also be applicable in addition to the connection fee. The sewerage infrastructure charge is currently set at £573 per property. This charge is billed by the water company either before or shortly after the connection has taken place. For further information regarding this charge, please review our Developer Charging Arrangements or give us a call on 0345 60 66 087 (option 2) or email

On this page you will find information about how to make the application and the application process.
