Water UK publishes guide to sustainable urban drainage system adoption

Water UK has published a manual on the standards sewers must meet if they are to be adoptable by water and sewerage companies in England.

Sewers for Adoption 8 is a design and construction guide for developers. It was produced by a multi-party steering group chaired by Professor David Balmforth. The published guide is a pre-implementation version, subject to Ofwat approval in 2019 as part of the regulator’s work on a Code on Adoption Agreements.
