MHE Associates are experienced in analysing and designing both foul and storm water drainage systems.
It is important that drainage is considered in the early stages of any development to ensure a viable solution can be achieved.
Important changes affecting private sewers were implemented on 1st October 2011 when all private sewers, with some exceptions, were transferred into the ownership of a statutory water and sewerage company.
To prevent the continued creation of private sewers the Flood and Water Management Act has amended the right of connection to a public sewer (Section 106 of the Water Industry Act). All new sewers, which connect to the public sewer, are subject to a mandatory Section 104 agreement and thus must be designed and constructed to a new National Standard, Sewers for Adoption 7th Edition, and will be adopted by a statutory water and sewerage company.
