Water and Sewerage Companies
- own and manage the public network of foul and surface sewer systems.
- are required under the law to keep these systems clean and properly drained.
- are also responsible for the maintenance of public water mains. If a burst water main causes flooding, you can contact your local water company to deal with the problem.
Property owners are responsible for private drains and sewers and are expected to sort out any problems including flooding that may arise from a leak, blockage or any other malfunction of the system.
