Drains and sewers

A drain is a pipe serving one property. The owner of the property is responsible for maintaining the drain.

A sewer is a pipe serving more than one property. In South Somerset, Wessex Water are responsible for the maintenance of all sewers, apart from a few exceptions.

You can find more information about who is responsible for the maintenance of different sections of the drain and sewer networks on the Wessex Water website.

We hold no records of private drainage serving individual properties.

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
