Sewer closures

Before an existing public sewer can be closed, we need to check that there are no other legal users connected to the sewer. We also need to understand the impact that closing a sewer may have on the rest of the sewer network.

Our Developer Engineers will discuss potential sewer closures and checks that must be done prior to closure, as part of their response to your enquiry about new site drainage.
