If your answers meet our requirements, we will send you an agreement. If not, we will re-educate you to apply for an approved construction agreement that you should pay. There is a discount to pay online. We may need to do additional research for sewers larger than 375 mm in diameter. This may delay the authorization. Learn more about the process. If you can build above or near a domestic channel 160 mm in diameter or less and show that your plans pose a low risk to the pipe, we may be able to grant a self-certified construction agreement. This provides the location of known water and/or sewer lines, including pipe dimensions and flow direction. Pipe depths and recovery levels are provided when data is available. If we present you with a self-certified Build over Agreement, you can start work immediately, as long as it is described. I accept that this application does not authorize the extension provided for by planning or construction rules. It is only when Southern Water Services has given written permission that no work should begin on site. I agree that for the purposes of the Water Industry Act 1991 and the Data Protection Act 1998, the information provided to this application and all accompanying documents may be kept, for all intents and purposes, electronic or other records, such as computer systems and their employees and agents, in connection with the company`s legal water and wastewater companies.
Public sewer “Mapped” are those that appear in the public sewer map maintained by your local water and sanitation company, which you can visit and inspect.

The following types of foundations on public sewers are generally not allowed Many sewers previously owned by private individuals do not appear in our archives. So if you are applying to build above or near a canal, we often need to give you details about nearby sewers and wells.
