Watermains

If your development requires a water main, Cambridge Water is able to lay it for you.

Once we have received your plans we will provide details of the likely cost of the main laying works. To progress the mainlaying works you will need to send us an advance payment. Please note this payment is non-returnable and may be subject to variation if acceptance and payment are not received within 28 days of the date of the estimate.

The likely costs assume that we will carry out the mainlaying work within three months, or other agreed reasonable time period, following receipt of your formal acceptance of the proposals and the advance payment.

Alternatively, you can get your own contractors to lay the mains based on the information we provide.

Should you choose to self-lay the main, we will send you a summary sheet entitled Non-contestable costs which details the cost of the various items of non-contestable work, and the asset payment that Cambridge Water Company will make on satisfactory completion of mainlaying.

In either event, if the proposed completion date alters we reserve the right to reassess the contribution and the asset value.
