Flood and Water Management Act – impact on house builders
Defra has confirmed its intention to implement Section 42 of FWMA in October 2013. From then, all new connections into the public sewerage system will require a S104 agreement and new standards will be introduced.
All drains and sewers communicating with the public system which were laid since 1 July 2011 will automatically be adopted by the WaSC on commencement of Section 42.
