The only publication that deals specifically with the complex and obscure legislation in this area, Garner's Law of Sewers and Drains:

  • Explains the subject matter in a clear and straightforward way, drawing attention to matters of practical difficulty;
  • Deals with the new primary legislation affecting water and sewerage undertakers - including the parts of the Flood Management and Water Act 2010 relating to infrastructure providers and the adoption of sustainable drainage systems;
  • Explains the new regime for regulating a wide range of activities that may affect the environment contained in the Environmental Permitting (England and Wales) Regulations 2010;
  • Details further moves towards implementation of the policy that responsibility for private sewers and lateral drains should be transferred to undertakers;
The new edition also covers a number of important new cases, dealing with issues such as:
  • the meaning of "sewer";
  • the scope of the Marcic decision in restricting common law claims in nuisance against sewerage undertakers;
  • the application of environmental protection to treatments processes at intermediate plants;
  • the application of offences arising out of the escape of controlled waste to the escape of sewage from pipes maintained by a sewerage undertaker;
  • and the decision that the choice of the point of connection to a public sewer lies with the owner or occupier, not the undertaker This book is an essential reference work for lawyers practising in this area, as well as those working in civil engineering and construction management.
