I am pleased to say that the transfer of private sewers and lateral drains to the statutory sewerage undertakers in England will take place on 1 October this year. Regulations to provide for the transfer, involving those sewers and drains that connect to the public sewerage system, will take effect on 1 July and the undertakers will then start the formal notification process. Private sewer owners need take no action to make the transfer happen.
