Sewers are also referred to as drains, wastewater drains, foulwater drains. We provide a network of sanitary sewer mains in urban areas.
A building is connected to the sewer by a 100 millimetre lateral pipe. The lateral has two parts; the length from the:
- sewer main to the property boundary is owned and maintained by the Council
- building to the boundary is the property owner's responsibility.
These pipes meet and are connected at the inspection point, which is at or near the boundary.
