Adoption of new sewers or pumping station

We promote the use of a Section 104 agreement (under the Water Industry Act 1991) for the adoption of new sewers and wastewater pumping stations that are to be constructed as part of new developments.

Sewers and pumping stations must be constructed in accordance with the current publication Sewers for Adoption.

In addition to Sewers for Adoption, we have our own Wastewater Pumping Station addendum which should be referred to when making an application.

If we are to adopt new sewers and wastewater pumping stations that are to be constructed as part of new developments, it will be necessary to complete a Sewers for Adoption Application. 

We would recommend reference to our Sewers for Adoption Guidance Notes to assist in completing an application.

Please complete the form then print it out and send your complete submission to:
