Why apply for a sewer connection when we are connecting to a public sewer via a private drain/sewer?

In this case we are approving the discharge of additional flows to the public sewer not the physical connection, and as part of our assessment we must ensure that the public system has adequate capacity to accept these flows.

We also require an application so that we have details of the connected properties for billing purposes. Please note that approval to connect to a private drain/sewer must be sought and obtained from the owner(s) of the drain/sewer.
