Mandatory adoption in Wales and the new Adoption Codes in England give new challenges to foul drainage designers. Customer expectations have changed massively in the last generation and this needs to be reflected not only in the design of housing, but also in the design of the drainage. The design of foul sewer networks in new developments is must meet the needs of the developer, the adopting authority and the future residents.
