Detailed underground utility maps from the experts
If you are looking for sewer maps then this may be because you are planning to excavate an area and need to know what is currently underneath where you plan to dig. Excavating areas without proper knowledge of what’s beneath can be both dangerous and potentially costly and excavating sewers is one area where a detailed map is the one of the first things you will need to ensure that your planned work goes as smoothly as possible.
Almost all the water companies in the UK have libraries of maps covering their water mains and sewerage network. However, If you are at all unsure of how to request detailed maps then using Cornerstone could save you a lot of time and inconvenience.
Knowing where your water pipes and sewers are before you dig is, of course, the first step. However, knowing where the sewer or water pipes are does not always mean that you should be OK to start your excavation.
If you believe that there may be other pipes and cables in the same area as your sewer pipes it would be advisable to get a detailed map of all underground utilities before you start the work. At Cornerstone we can provide detailed maps from as little as £30.00 + VAT.
The utility plans will usually only show the utility mains at and around a property – they will not show local connections to the individual property as most of these were never recorded historically. It may still be worth doing a search however – there are often main sewers/water/ etc. running within property boundaries
