  • Coming soon – Sewers for adoption 8

    A pre-implementation version of Sewers for Adoption 8th Edition (SfA8) has now been published by Water UK. It is part of the sector’s implementation of the Ofwat Code on Adoption Agreements and is expected to come into effect by mid-2019.

    Ofwat will make the final decision to approve SFA8 as part of the adoption code, but once the new guidance does come into effect, it will be the only guide to outline the standards that sewers must meet if they are to be adoptable by water and sewerage companies in England.

    In this edition for the first time, guidance on adoptable SuDS has been included.

    Wessex Water along with developers, consultants, planners and other sewerage companies are already planning changes to policies and procedures to get ready to implement the new manual. By publishing this document in advance, it will allow sufficient time for those changes to be made even if the final form of the guidance changes as part of the adoption code work.

    More information can be found on the Water UK website.
