Get Connected to Sewerage
If you live in an area that the National Water Commission has a central sanitary sewerage network, you are urged to get connected so that both you and the environment may benefit from the advantages of the central sewerage network.
You are also reminded that, if your premises are within 100 yards or 110 metres of the sewer mains you will be charged sewerage rates whether you choose to get connected or not. It is therefore in your interest, not to mention the environment and public health, to get connected.
If you are not yet connected, here are some steps to follow:
- You should visit the nearest NWC Commercial Office or Wastewater Department and collect an application for sewerage connection form. Fill out the application form and return the completed application form along with the associated drawings for the sewerage connection to the nearest NWC Office (Wastewater Dept.)
- Based on the application form and the associated drawings, the NWC Wastewater Dept. will determine the processing fees that will be charged. Customer should then visit the nearest NWC Commercial Office to pay the processing fee.
- After receiving NWC’s approval for connection, advise NWC (two weeks in advance) of the intended time for effecting connection so that NWC may observe the connection and testing exercise
- Upon final connection, have all septic systems drawn / cleaned by a cesspool / sewage haulage contractor company and pack the septic system with back filling material (i.e. dump up the soak-away pit or other septic system).
