Private pumping stations

Example of a private pumping station

If you have a private pumping station at the bottom of your garden or in your street we need to know about it.

Previously you were responsible if anything went wrong but the good news is that from 1st October 2016 we took responsibility for many private pumping stations in our region, including the cost to maintain and run them. We've now found most private pumping stations across our region, but we're still looking for the last few.

We're still assessing each of these eligible pumping stations and carrying out detailed surveys and any necessary repairs. So if you think your Private Pumping Station is eligible for transfer find out if we're already aware of it.

Transfer of private pumping stations is the 2nd stage of the BIG sewer switchover. As explained in the video:

Spot a Private Pumping Station

They can come in various shapes, sizes, colours and locations. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for our handy spotter's guide can help.

If you've spotted a private pumping station please tell us about it. You can email us or call us on 03457 145 145.

We need to know:

  • Was the pumping station installed & pumping by 1st July 2011?
  • Does the pumping station pump to an Anglian Water main?
  • Does the pumping station serve more than one property?
If yes to any of these we'll then carry out an eligibility survey.
