Sewage Connection – Applying To Connect To A Public Sewer
Sewage connection may be something you are interested in, yet you may be unsure regarding how to go about it. In most cases, you need to complete an application form and send it to the relevant Water Authority for your area. They will then accept or reject the application within a set time frame.
Of course, you will want to ensure that your application is accepted, and so you may be a bit worried about the sort of questions you will be asked and how you should answer them. There is no need to fret; most of the applications for sewer connection are pretty straightforward, and we are going to take you through what you can expect. Firstly, you will need to fill in your personal details, including your name, address, telephone number and such like. You will then need to give details of the site or the premises to be connected. Once you have provided the basic details, you will then be asked for information about the connection you are proposing. You will likely be asked what type of connection you want to be made, i.e. an indirect connection, or direct to the public sewer. You will also need to indicate the number of properties and units to be connected, as well as the type of premises to be connected. Other questions include those about the content of the effluent discharge, if you have any existing water supply to the premises, and if you have planning consent. You will likely be asked for a few supporting documents as well.
