S106 Application to connect
S106 of the Water Industry Act is used to apply for a new connection to the public sewer network and can be made by any landowner or developer. Any proposed connection must be approved by Icosa Water Services prior to any works being carried out.
As the sewerage undertaker for your area, you are legally required to notify us before a connection is made to the public sewer. Not sure if you’re in our area, you can check by clicking the link below.
Please note that any connections to the public sewer without the required notification, is a criminal offence and may be removed at the developer or landowners expense.
A S106 application has 2 options for fees depending on the type of connection you intend to make, and they are as follows:
A private connection serving just one property where the existing sewer runs within the property curtilage. The drain will remain private. This application will cost £187.50
A private connection serving one or more properties where the existing sewer runs within private land owned by others or within the public highway. Icosa Water will adopt the lateral drain subject to a suitable demarcation chamber being constructed. This application will cost £495.00
