We are currently completing a project to separate old combined wastewater and stormwater mains. Once the upgrade reticulation has been installed the next step will be to get the internal private drainage separated.
Just wondering if anyone has any relevant experience with this that they would be willing to share. In particular I am interested as to if Council's have funded this work or required the property owner to fund the work.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Auckland Council Healthy Waters pays and completes the private drainage separation as part of the separation project. The argument is this:
While it is theoretically possible to get private property owners to connect up to a new system using provisions in the old Local Government Act 1974, to try and enforce that would be virtually impossible and at best painful, time consuming, expensive and a reputational risk to Council.
Hope this is some help to you.Allan
