What is the difference between a direct and indirect connection?

Direct and indirect connection

A direct connection is any connection that is made to any public sewer.An indirect connection is a connection to a private drain that then goes into a public sewer. A private drain is an existing pipe that only serves 1 property and is within the property boundary.

The costs for these connections differ so you need to be aware which is required before you apply.
