2. Connecting to a public sewer

All water and sewerage companies have a duty to provide public sewers to make sure the area is effectively drained.

Usually, you have the right to connect the drain from your property to the public sewer - although you may have to pay for this.

You should contact South West Water if you wish to connect to the public sewer.
