Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return.
Could you please explain the situation a little more?
NOTICED ALL THREE TYPES OF WASTE ARE MIXED ON DISCHARGE AND DONT THINK THIS IS RIGHT
Discharge where? Drains outside?
I see. Have you complained to the Council yet please?
I NEED TO CONFIRM WHAT I THINK IS THE REGS THAT IS WHY I,M ASKING YOU FOR CONFIRMATION
The Buildings Regs state:
Foul water (rain etc):
H1 - Sewerage
"An adequate system of drainage, shall be provided to carry foul water, from appliances within the building to one of the following in order of priority: a public sewer"
H3 - Rainwater
Rainwater shall discharge to the following: soakaway, watercourse or sewer
So yes they can be mixed together with rain and general waste water.
Here is the link to the building reg that says it is ok:
