Civilistix Consulting Engineers has excellent working relationships with many of the UK sewerage undertaker companies and strong knowledge of their requirements having undertaken a significant amount of drainage approvals. This expertise means we are very well placed to prepare and obtain agreement for any of your diversion or build over agreements to support development proposals
Sewer Diversion & Build-over Agreements
If a pipe is adopted by the sewage undertaker and conflicts with development proposals, a formal build over agreement or diversion (under S185 of the Water Industry Act 1991) with the sewerage will be required to agree the works.
Determining whether a diversion or build over is most appropriate will be based on the characteristics of the development including the span of pipe in conflict, and its size and depth as well as an appreciation of costs for undertaking either option.
