One of our specialist areas is assisting with ‘Public Sewer Connections’. There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding who is responsible for this connection, and what it is.
So, what is a public sewer connection?
The public sewer connection is the connection between your home drainage system and a public sewer. This ensures the waste or surface water is channelled away from your property safely, and effectively.
A property owners’ perspective
The drains and sewers that carry your household waste from your property to a public network are the responsibility of the homeowner, or landlord. It works in exactly the same way as other utility supplies. The boundary of your property is where the household connection hits the public sewer, and then it becomes the sewerage company’s responsibility.
Your local water and sewerage companies have a duty to provide a public sewer. You do however need written approval before you can connect to a public sewer.
