Check sewer servicing guidelines

Whether for plumbers, builders or property owners, these sewer servicing guidelines (pdf, 1.3Mb) explain responsibilities and requirements for any sewer works including blocked sewers, sewer developments, test priors, boundary traps, updating sewer plans and much more.

Only South East Water and its authorised contractors are permitted to work on or enter a water authority’s asset. Please ensure you have contacted our faults and emergencies team before commencing any work if you are unsure.

These guidelines are to be read in conjunction with South East Water’s ‘Notice of Agreement’ and ‘Conditions of Consent’ issued pursuant to Section 144 of the Water Act 1989.
