We first indicated that we will implement the sewer sector guidelines and the standard wastewater disposal agreement, which will come into effect on October 31, 2019. However, as part of their response to our minor revisions, the companies requested a longer time frame, with a proposed implementation date of April 1, 2020. We believe that this is appropriate and, as such, according to paragraph B1.4 of the Code, this is the time when sewer sector documents become “live.” The Code establishes a framework for the general principles in which companies must comply with adoption agreements and requires companies to cooperate with their customers to develop, agree and maintain sectoral guidelines (which define the processes by which parties can enter into adoption agreements) and model adoption agreements. The code sets the minimum requirements for these documents, including information and publication requirements; Where waivers may be allowed; and governance agreements, including the sectoral organization, which convenes governance panels to review future code changes. A Section 104 sewer disposal application must be made before your drainage company can begin building a new canal, so the local sanitation authority will agree to take over the newly constructed new private canal (or pumping station) as soon as the work is completed. This means that they will keep it at their own expense in the future. Sewers must be designed and constructed to meet sewer requirements for disposal and appropriate clearances must be available. If the connection to public sewers is necessary, a request to connect to the canal must be made in accordance with Section 106 of the Water Management Act. One of the common features of the S104 agreements is an obligation. This is an amount (usually 10% of the cost of the sewerage system) that the developer pays to the water company at the beginning of the agreement. The water company will then keep this for the duration of the agreement and use it if, for some reason (for example.B. in liquidation), the developer breaks down and does not provide a network of channels to the required standards.
