How do I get the pipe work adopted?

Adoption

Once the connection work has been inspected and signed off by us, we will then issue out the paperwork to confirm if the pipe work will remain the property owner’s responsibility or if we’ve taken responsibility (known as a vesting certificate).

This is based on the position and location of the public sewer. In most cases we’ll adopt the lateral drain lengths within the public highway up to the demarcation chamber that is constructed within 1m of the property boundary.
