Sewer adoptions

Section 104 application for sewer adoptions

You can apply to us to adopt new sewers and pumping stations under a S104 agreement. 

Occasionally we are asked to consider adopting existing private treatment works or historic sewers under a S102 agreement.

All adoptable sewers are designed and constructed to a national standard set out in the Sewers for Adoption guidance book. We have an addendum to this guidance book specifically for pumping station design.

A number of our documents are currently under review – if you cannot find what you were looking for, please contact a member of our team and we will advise you what to do.
