Self lay
We're happy to help developers who want to construct their own mains, also known as 'Self Lay'.

Self Lay is the process where a developer instructs an accredited third party, known as a ‘Self Lay Provider’, to install new water mains and/or services.


Before starting a Self Lay scheme, we recommend that both the developer and the Self Lay Provider (SLP) check with the current 'Code of Practice for the Self-Laying of Water Mains and Services'.


The Code of Practice can be found here.


If you'd like to build new water mains and/or services under the Self Lay process, start by filling in our Water Mains Application form, found at the bottom of the page.
