  List of contractors        Mains drainage     Emptying your cesspool or septic tank       Important information to read

Important - read this if you are not connected to mains drainage.


If you have a sealed cesspool, that does not leak, then the only requirement is for it to  be emptied regularly.


If you have a septic tank that drains either into the ground or a water way, then you are required to register with the envirlonment agency, for which an application fee is payable.


Visit the web page below for full guidance on both cesspools and septic tanks, and the registration fees payable by domestic users, charities and buisnesses. The link will also allow you to register on line - suggest that you keep a copy of the registrstation with your propery deeds or paperwork.

One or two exceptions, which are connected to the Bossingham mains drainage scheme, e.g. Stelling Minnis Primary School, all properties have either septic tanks or cesspools.  A few properties have a communal cesspool or sewage disposal schemes.


 Unless funding arrangements significantly change or the requirement on Southern Water compels then to provide it, then there is unlikely to be mains drainage provided to any other properties in Stelling Minnis.
