Residential property | Jersey | Property drainage – Minister for infrastructure

If you are planning to sell a property it would be advisable to review your drainage systems to ensure they complywith the law.

A recent communique from the Minister for Infrastructure makes it clear that surface water running into foul drainage systems will not longer be permitted.  The communique states that his department are ‘seriously’ concerned about the impact to the sewers in the island and the risk of pollution in times of high rainfall.

What are the implications for you?  If your property’s surface water drainage system connects to the foul water system it will need to be rectified by the owner. If not,  it is likely to hold up a sale.  We would advise all property owners looking to sell their property to review the situation and if necessary contact a drainage specialist for further advice.
