How much does a new water connection cost?

Once you have submitted your application we will assess your connection requirements and arrange to visit your site.  You will need a quote specific to your project which will follow after the site survey has been completed.

The quote will most commonly be made up of the following costs:

  • The connection costs (for all work/materials required for us to make the new connections)
  • Traffic management (depending on the location of our water main there will be different costs involved in managing the traffic to enable the connections to be made safely.  These will be assessed during the site visit)
  • Infrastructure charges (all properties connecting to our network for the first time are liable to pay infrastructure charges)

In order to receive a new connection quotation you will need to apply for a new connection. To request a new connection application form and information pack you can call our Services Helpline on 0344 346 2020 or visit obtaining a new water connection which details the steps involved in getting a new connection.

The quote will include the costs of making the connection, laying our part of the service pipe, a stop tap and installation of a water meter along with any charges in addition to the cost of making the connection.
