Taking in Charge – SITE SIGN OFF: Nationwide
Elements under this section – Nationwide Taking in charge – include, surface water sewers and foul water sewers and wastewater treatment plants. These elements will be taken in charge simultaneously with roads/footpaths and open spaces.
Collection systems will be taken in charge, subject to them complying with the requirements of this document and the Council’s adopted policy on ‘taking in charge’ of private housing developments. Any connection pipe to a main sewer on the adjoining road will be taken in charge from the main sewer to the boundary of the site. If the main sewer is within the curtilage of a house, only the main sewer will be taken in charge. Branch connections from individual houses to the main sewer will remain private property.
The following minimum specific requirements shall apply:
(a) A separate storm water and foul water system shall be provided in each case.
(b) Separate sewer service connections shall be provided for each dwelling house.
CCTV Survey/Manhole Survey
A CCTV survey/manhole survey of the collection systems shall be submitted to the Council prior to lodging an application for taking in charge.
Council shall be notified two weeks in advance of the commencement date of the survey and may attend. The Council’s representative on site may make reasonable requests of the operator.
The sewers to be surveyed will be thoroughly cleaned out prior to the camera survey. The CCTV Survey shall be carried out using a camera that is capable of measuring and recording distance from one manhole to another.
The CCTV Survey report shall conform to the standards set out in the WRC Manual on Sewer Condition Classification. The report shall include a summary of any defects in the systems. Any defects in the systems shall be corrected by the Developer at his own expense, prior to taking in charge. The printed report shall be supplemented by high-resolution photographs and good quality DVD recording.
A drainage layout plan of as-constructed sewers shall be submitted on diskette, prepared to Wincan V8 Specification, showing a detailed survey of each manhole, sewer structure and a digitised layout of the as-constructed housing estates.
