Sanderson Associates provides developers with a comprehensive drainage design service that ranges from small private drainage systems to large wastewater and surface drainage systems for adoption with secondary south systems, so that developments can meet planning conditions for surface water flow requirements and wastewater discharge requirements. Another type of sewer is through another section of the Water Management Act, S102. This is a retroactive agreement that can be used to take back existing sewers in which there is no S104 agreement. This is done at the request of the owner and, if the water company is satisfied with the condition of the sewers, the transfer is immediate. In our research, these are sometimes described as being in the negotiation phase, with the sewers made public immediately after the agreement was signed. Appendix G of the sewer sector guidelines contains the terms of the panel code. The code group (see point 3.8 of the code) is tasked with reviewing proposals to amend the sewer sector guidelines and the agreement on the adoption of remediation models. An agreement under Section 106 allows for a new connection to an existing public sanitation system. Sewers must be designed and constructed to meet sewer requirements for disposal and appropriate clearances must be available. If the connection to public sewers is necessary, a request to connect to the canal must be made in accordance with Section 106 of the Water Management Act.
The adoption process was recently made more difficult by the private transfer of channels in 2011. As part of the transfer, most of the sewers, which were installed before July of this year, were automatically transferred to the property of the water companies. These include sewers under the S104 agreements. However, the transfer involved only sewers discharged into the public system. The S104 agreements also concern surface water channels that carry rainwater from the land. Many of them flow into streams or ponds. These were not included in the transfer, which means that there are developments where the bad pipes are owned by the water company, but where the surface water pipes are still subject to an acceptance agreement. There are also developments for which some of them were connected and adopted before July 2011 and parts that have been connected and are still private thereafter. To file an application for channel S104, you must deliver: Before starting construction of the canal, an adoption contract must be entered into in accordance with Section 104. In addition, a 10% obligation of the estimated cost of construction is required. On January 7, 2019, companies submitted for approval a draft guidelines for the water sector and a draft standard water adoption agreement. Our review of the projects concluded that there were certain aspects of draft documents that required continued work and engagement of companies, in consultation with their clients, before we could assume that they were in compliance with the principles of the code.
