Water mains – best practice design principles

Water UK and the Homebuilders Federation (HBF) have agreed best practice principles for the design of on-site water mains constructed specifically for the purpose of new water connections to new build premises. The aim is to provide an agreed set of high level principles for water companies, developers and their associated constructors to follow. Nothing contained in this guidance shall relieve the designer from using their skills and experience to produce a cost-effective and sensible proposal.
