Building over sewers
They may be out of sight, but our sewer pipes should never be out of mind when you’re building over or close to them. Why? Because building works can often negatively affect our sewers, in turn compromising the service we provide our customers. It’s why you need our permission before you begin building, so we can help protect them.
It’s our job to maintain the sewers in our area and safeguard them for customers and future generations. It’s a job we take very seriously. Without our approval your property could be negatively impacted by our sewers, for example, flooding, or even collapse. It could also make selling your property trickier than you think, whereas keeping us in the loop and going through the right application channels will not only protect our sewers, it’ll keep your property safe too.
