Dear South West Water Limited,

I am interested in the combined public sewers running beneath First Avenue, Hevitree, Exeter, and adjacent properties. I beleive that there might be two combined public sewers running SW to NE beneath the southern section of this road, and if this is correct then South West Water would presumably be the undertaker of these sewers.

Please can you supply me with the following information:

(1) Is there a publically available map indicating the location of these sewers on First Avenue? If so, please could you provide me with a URL of these maps?

(2) Assuming that these maps exist, can you estimate the likely accuracy of the horizontal positions of the sewers as indicated on this map?

(3) What is the diameter of these public combined sewers?

(4) Are the depths of these sewers below the ground sruface known?

(5) Are there any records of the condition of these public combined sewers?

Yours faithfully,
J. Snoalv

Hi Fran

I'd say that you don't strictly have to treat this as an EIR but the info they are requesting is environmental info. They have asked for condition reports also, which is something SWW ought to consider providing under the Regulations.

They seem to want to pin point the exact location of the sewer for some reason.
