About New Mains

This section of the website will talk you through the requirements which need to be met in order for you to be ready for your mains laying. We have also outlined some frequently asked questions, such as working on contaminated land.

There are many regulations surrounding the laying of new mains. If you are looking to have a new main installed it is important that you are aware of the specification that needs to be met in order for the work to be undertaken.

We hope you can find what you need in this section, but if you have any other questions please contact us on 0117 9341224, and speak to the Developer Interface Team.

Arrange a date for mainlaying

Arrange a date for mainlaying

If we are installing the mains for your development, you will need to contact us to arrange for the mainlaying to be included in our mainlaying programme.
You will have been given the name and contact details for the Distribution District Manager/Network Site Agent responsible for the mainlaying on your site when we wrote to you with the finalised details for the scheme.  Once you have informed us which payment option you prefer and/or paid the financial contribution for the mains, please contact the relevant Distribution District Manager/Network Site Agent to arrange a mainlaying date.

Normally our mainlaying crews are booked-up about two months in advance, but occasionally we get cancellations.
