Further Information

If your property has a septic tank, it’s important to keep up to date with the relevant rules, regulations and responsibilities – especially if they change.

Recent legislative updates prohibit new septic tanks from discharging directly into a watercourse. From 1 January, 2020, owners of houses with existing septic tanks will also have to comply with this rule, including anyone planning to sell a property with a septic tank before this deadline. This can be remedied by connecting to the main sewer network, creating a drainage field or installing a sewage treatment plant.

For more information, consult the official government guidance on this legislation. You can also check out our guide to the essentials of septic tank maintenance, or download our septic tank best practice guide.
