IMPORTANT Law on Sewer Ownership

Drains: the law on sewer ownership changed in October 2011, so now only drains (pipes serving one property) on your property are your responsibility.

Sewers: (pipes serving more than one property) are now the responsibility of Thames Water. If your drain is shared with your neighbour and is blocked contact Thames Water on 0845 9200 800. You will not be charged for clearing a sewer shared with your neighbour.

If your drains are blocked you need to call a plumber or drainage engineer, otherwise contact Thames Water on 0845 9200 800, who will charge you for clearing your drain.

The responsibility for drains on public highways, which take road water, is split between Oxfordshire County Council and Oxford City Council. Oxfordshire County Council is responsible for drains on major roads and Oxford City Council is responsible for drains on minor roads.
