If you are proposing a pumping station to adopt as part of your project, you will need to refer to our design requirements for our „local pumping station practice,“ which you will find in our current pumping station addendum (PDF 7.259 KB opens in a new window). The pumping station is covered under the same S104 agreement as the gravity sewers. If you have your technical agreement from us for your sewer system design, you must be in a section 104 agreement so that we can formally handle the sewers. We are aware that construction may need to begin before the S104 agreement is signed by all parties. In order not to delay the start of your work, you can complete a quick request after receiving the technical receipt and paying the S104 fee. During the work, we carry out inspections to verify compliance with the S104 agreement. If inappropriate work, materials or anomalies are detected, we will inform the field contact of the defects. You can enter into an agreement in accordance with Section 104, either by asking us to establish one and provide all necessary documents, or by telling us that you intend to prepare your own legal agreement. Please note the Model Sewer Adoption Agreement. . For more information on the transition to the new adoption codes, visit the Water UK website. You can also see our simple guide (PDF 228 KB opens in a new window) We have two phases of the adoption process that provide these links, so we advise on our local practices for We will inform you three months before the end of your maintenance period, then you should check the sewers and make sure there are no maintenance problems.
All pre-development studies should be conducted above the wastewater development application form. Sewers may also be proposed for approval to a new agent and variant, which can also provide wholesale water and/or sanitation services for a given area. More information can be found in our new appointment and in our variants (NAV). Under Section 102 of the Water Industry Act 1991, the owner of an existing private sewerage system can apply to transfer ownership of the sewers to us. Below is a guide on what to do when you offer new sewers and pumping stations to accept, including links to relevant application forms. From 1 April 2020, Ofwat introduces a new standard practice throughout water management in England, covering the introduction of new sewers. The new procedure is described in Water UK`s new Channel Sector Guidelines (SSGs), which will replace the Sewers for Adoption guidelines. Once all the rehabilitation work is completed to our satisfaction, our engineer will issue the final certificate and the legal diversion of the sewers will take place shortly thereafter. Once the site is more than 50% occupied and all remediation work, including all pumping stations, our inspector will confirm that the inspection of the system, including CCTV, has been completed and that all rehabilitation work has been completed.
Once this has been done, the site can continue to operate with maintenance. We will conduct a maintenance inspection for our inspectors to confirm that the work is appropriate for a 12-month maintenance and we will issue the interim certificate.
