Anglian Water has made an assessment of the available capacity at Water Recycling Centre's (WRC) (formerly known as sewage treatment works) and the foul sewerage network for each of the modified/additional sites.
It is important to note that this assessment does not take account of the cumulative impact of development on the WRCs and the foul network.
The foul flows from future growth will have an impact on the existing sewerage network. Infrastructure upgrades will be required to serve the proposed growth.
Where there are sewers or water mains crossing the site, the site layout should be designed to take these into account; this existing infrastructure is protected by easements and should not be built over or located in private gardens where access for maintenance and repair could be restricted. The sewers or mains should be located in highways or public open space. If it is not possible to accommodate the existing sewers or mains within its design then diversions may be possible under section 185 of the Water Industry Act 1991 or entering into a build over/near agreement may be considered.
With regards to surface water, disposal to surface water should be seen as the last option when all sustainable drainage solutions (SuDS) and discharge direct to watercourses have been investigated and proven non viable. Anglian Water strongly recommends that there is inclusion of a district wide or site specific policy regarding SuDS in the Local Plan.
