9. More than four building over agreements in a row will not be permitted on a
   length of public sewer without an external manhole being available for
   suitable operation access.

10. If the householder or Building Control requests that a survey be carried out,
    Thames Water would not object. All such surveys shall be carried out at the
    householder’s expense.

11. It should be noted that sewers of this type are occasionally found to have
    minor defects such as misaligned joints (often since new) or hairline cracking.
    Pipes in this condition would be accepted by Thames Water as being in a
    serviceable condition.

12. The use of plastic pipes will not be permitted within the public sewer or lateral
    drain, unless the plastic pipe can withstand 4000 psi jetting pressure.

13. Confined space entry procedures must be observed when breaking into the
    existing public sewerage system.

14. The exact dimensions of the sewer pipe should be verified on site by careful
    internal and external measurement prior to cutting the pipe.

15. Surface water drainage must not discharge into the foul water system or foul
    water into the surface water system.
