But be careful — paperwork in advance is going to take much, much longer. You must first apply under Section 106 (more information here) which we usually handle for you. In case the public sewers are in the motorway (90% of the time), we have to request a section 50 from the local County Council motorway department, normally you cannot do it yourself, we have to do it for you. This process cannot normally be initiated until you/we have Section 106 of the Water Board – highways should know that the Water Authority agrees to the connection being established. Our client bought land for a new property in Hargrave. The initial location was Ödland, which required a possibility of removing digestion and surface water. As surface water flowed into the back garden at Soakaways*, the rotten water had to be dumped into the existing Anglian Water sewers that run through the village. Saddle connection is the preferred method of connecting to a public sewer larger than 300 mm in diameter and is used in a surface water connection rather than a bad connection – as rotten sewer lines larger than 300 mm are not so common, while surface water channels often have a diameter of 300 mm or more. This method of assembly requires that a hole be professionally drilled into the existing sewer pipe, normally on top of the pipe on the side, and that the “saddle” be fixed to the pipe by cement sludge or quick-weaning resin. After a hardened connection, other pipes can be connected to the saddle.
As soon as we have the supply plans, we will be able to apply for Section 50 on the highways. This includes submitting our certificate of accreditation and insurance, a site plan that lists the work we want, our traffic management proposal and section 106 that we received from the Water Authority. Section 50 is then considered by highways for treatment, which can take from a few weeks to 10 weeks in some cases. Yes. We will always do an inspection of the actual connection to the canal by the water authority as part of our offer to you.. . .
