New Regulations in England & Wales enable developers to lay water mains & services.
WRc, UKWIR, Society of British Water & Wastewater Industries (SBWWI) and the House Builders Federation (HBF) have developed Codes of Practice for developers wishing to undertake the self-laying of water mains and services on a development site.
The Codes cover processes and requirements for the self-laying of mains (Part 1), guidance on the design of water mains and services for new developments (Part 2), and the specification of products and materials (Part 3).
Water UK, Scottish Water, HBF & SBWWI commend the use of the Codes of Practice to their members. OFWAT also encourages the use of the Code of Practice across the water industry in England and Wales.
- Enabling developers to provide a safe, secure and reliable supply of water for both domestic and non-domestic customers
- Giving the water industry confidence in the self lay of water mains and services.
