The difference between a drain and a sewer
A drain is a pipe that drains water and waste from a building. A lateral drain carries wastewater away from your property. It’s often located under a public pavement or road. While sewer collects water and waste from the drains of a number of buildings. Publicly your water companies owe and maintain most of the sewers. However, there are still some sewers which have private owners. Some people have a connection to a cesspool, septic tank or treatment plant, and not to a sewer. Actually, you won’t have to pay sewerage charges to a sewerage company if you have no connection to a sewer.
Repairs to drains
According to official regulations, property owners are responsible for maintaining or repairing any drains inside the boundaries of your property. Hence, if an accident occurs, you will have to pay for this work. However, but you are free to choose whichever company you want to do the work. Sometimes, you may have insurance for the drain to your property.
In some circumstances, your local authority environmental health department can order you to carry out improvement work or replace a private drain.
