For sewers larger than 160 mm in diameter, you must tell us when construction is complete, so that we can order a ccTV study after construction to check the condition of the sewers. We check CCTV`s surveys before obtaining authorization. If your answers meet our requirements, we will send you an agreement. If not, we will re-educate you to apply for an approved construction agreement that you should pay. There is a discount to pay online. We may need to do additional research for sewers larger than 375 mm in diameter. This may delay the authorization. Learn more about the process. If you plan to build above or near pipes, you should take certain precautions.
The process depends on the transportation of drinking water or wastewater. If you have requested a full agreement, we will contact you within 21 days of your application. We will discuss your proposal with you, including any details that may need to be changed. On October 1, 2011, responsibility for private gravity and crosswalks, built prior to July 1, 2011 and communicated with public sewers, was transferred to sewerage companies such as Southern Water. The installation has increased by about 19,000 km the number of sewers and side sewers that are responsible for the water of the south. Many of the sewers and reorientation sewers had not been mapped, so their location and condition are unknown. In the absence of detailed information on the transferred pipes and cross-exits, it can be assumed that they will be present in the gardens and on the land to be built and that they will therefore probably be affected by the construction applications. Therefore, you must consider that any sewer system currently located on your property or discovered during your work is public equipment and southern water property, unless it can be proven otherwise. The following types of foundations on public sewers are generally not allowed to build above (or near) a public (low) or lateral sewer If you are building above or near a domestic canal with a diameter of 160mm or less and you can show that your plans pose little risk to the pipe, we may be able to grant a self-certified construction agreement. If we present you with a self-certified Build over Agreement, you can start work immediately, as long as it is described.
Take our online quiz and find out if you qualify for a free self-certified construction agreement. This agreement is free and will be sent to you immediately by email.
