The Private Sewers Transfer Regulations
This white paper, published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) of the UK, provides provisional non-statutory guidance on private sewer transfer regulations.
The white paper aims to explain and give guidance on issues arising from the regulations and where additional clarification is needed.
According to the paper, the government considers sewer transfer to provide the most comprehensive solution to the problems associated with private sewer ownership.
Transfers are also said to remove unfair burdens of maintenance and repair from householders and provide better integrated management of the sewerage system.
