Find out about the general binding rules and permits for septic tanks. See list of local companies who empty septic tanks. We do not empty septic tanks.

Since October 2011 the water undertaker now has the responsibility for private sewers and drains that were previously the responsibility of some house owners.
Public sewers in Eden are the responsibility of United Utilities Plc and Northumbria Water in the Alston area.
We can take action against poorly maintained land drainage that may lead to flooding.
