Application forms, guidance & agreements

If you are planning to discharge anything other than domestic waste into a drain that’s connected to a public sewer, it is likely that you’ll need to obtain consent from us before you commence any discharge. Please contact your appointed Retailer to discuss this.

You should be aware that from 1st April, the retail water  market for business customers is changing. It will work in a similar way to other utilities in which you will have the freedom to choose a retailer for services such as billing and customer service. For more information on the changes and advice on how to choose a retailer go to Open Water website.

Here are all of our application forms for you to download. We've also put together some guidance notes for you.

If you're already familiar with our processes for new connections and you know what type of new connection you require you will find all of our application forms on this page. We also have a number of guidance documents which you may want to read before applying or use as a reference throughout the process. They include lots of technical specifications and information on agreed design standards.
