Under no circumstances do we allow construction over a sewer or side flow where: you must apply for build-over/near via our InFlow online portal if you do not meet our standard criteria. Our water connection calculator gives you an indicative price for connecting your property(s) to our water pipe. Before applying for over-or near a sewer: Note: If the sewer is pumped, a close over-war or agreement is not allowed and a section 185 “Diversion of a public sewer” may be requested. A Build Over agreement gives the water company the assurance that the work to be done will not negatively impact the underlying sewers and also ensures that the water company retains sufficient access to the sewers so that it can be repaired and maintained. If you plan to build near or above a public sewer, you should contact the water company before the work done to identify the needs. If no build-over contract has been concluded, the seller should have a CCTV investigation carried out on the sewers and transmit the film equipment to the water company. If the water company is satisfied that the sewage disposal channel is in good condition, it will issue a comfort letter confirming that the sewage disposal channel is in satisfactory condition. The comfort letter usually convinces the buyer and their lender that the water company will not take any action to demolish the offensive structure above the public sewers. Dig dig to find our public sewers and water pipes. To apply for construction above or near a public sewer, please apply via InFlow via the link on the right. If it is found that the existing pipe is in poor condition or the material is unlucky, you need to reinstall the length of the tube under the structure at your own expense so that you can consider an extension. This minimizes the risk of structural pipe failure after construction, and the potential for inconvenience and service failure for you in the future. Please note that a diversion of the sewers should be considered whenever possible.
