    Responsibility for manhole covers?

    Responsibility for manhole covers? 10th Aug 12 at 7:42 PM
    In my garden, I have four manholes that provide access to a sewer pipe - that's a communal sewer serving maybe 14 or 15 houses.

    Under recent legislation, Anglian Water are now responsible for the sewer. Clearly, if it gets blocked it is Anglian Water who unblock it as part of the service they provide.

    So my question is - Does that mean that they are also responsible for maintaining the manholes and manhole covers that are needed to service that sewer? Mine are getting rusty and are going to have to be replaced soon. I would rather that it was not by me!
