Within the southern part of the water, there are approximately 39,000 kilometres of public sewers, some of which have been moved within the boundaries of the land. As sewer manager, Southern Water is responsible for the maintenance of these pipes. In order to comply with legislation relating to the management and diversion of public sewers, it is necessary that anyone wishing to develop land or expand their land be consulted with Southern Water to determine its requirements for the management of lateral effluents or sewers that may be affected by their construction proposals. On October 1, 2011, responsibility for private gravity and crosswalks, built prior to July 1, 2011 and communicated with public sewers, was transferred to sewerage companies such as Southern Water. The installation has increased by about 19,000 km the number of sewers and side sewers that are responsible for the water of the south. Many of the sewers and reorientation sewers had not been mapped, so their location and condition are unknown. In the absence of detailed information on the transferred pipes and cross-exits, it can be assumed that they will be present in the gardens and on the land to be built and that they will therefore probably be affected by the construction applications. Therefore, you must consider that any sewer system currently located on your property or discovered during your work is public equipment and southern water property, unless it can be proven otherwise. In accordance with the Water Industry Act 1991, the Building Control Partnership provides information on the mapping of all public sewers in Boroughs Fareham and Gosport. The sewers are owned by Southern Water Services, which are responsible for managing blockages and other problems in their sewers.
Most of the sewers are on the highway (or more precisely, below the highway!). Many are in gardens and private land. It is important to note that public sewers have a much higher status than private exits that connect your property to the canal. Water services in the South must ensure access to maintenance, some sewers cause very high flows and the consequences of a blockade or collapse can be serious: large numbers of people could be deprived of drainage of the networks. You can find out if there are public sewers in your country if you are planning to expand your home or do other work in your property. It is also useful to check for all public sewers inside a property that you might want to buy, it can be difficult to build extensions or there may be a risk of sewage flooding from the sewers from time to time. The Harrisons had no choice but to stick to it.
