Building and Developing

I have a water main on the site of my development, what do I need to do?

Water main

If you have a Severn Trent Water owned water main or a public sewer running across your land where you’re proposing your new development you may need to divert it. You can download our existing mains and sewerage network plans to check that your site is within the Severn Trent Water boundary from www.digdat.co.uk.

If there is a water main and you wish to build over it, you'll need to apply for this to be diverted. We'll assess and quote for the diversion. Please see our Diversions page.
