It is a provision in the Water Industry Act which allows an owner of a private sewer to apply to their sewerage provider (United Utilities, in this case) to take over responsibility for the sewer.
Lots of private sewers were automatically transferred to us back in 2011, but there are still some which remain under private ownership.
Section 102 gives these private sewer owners the opportunity to apply to us to see if we can take over responsibility.
