6.—(1) This regulation supplements the duty imposed on every sewerage undertaker by Article 149(1) of the 2006 Order to provide sewerage systems and any contravention of the requirements of this regulation shall be treated for the purposes of that Order as a breach of that duty.
(2) Subject to paragraph (3), the duty imposed by sub-paragraph (1)(a) of Article 149 of the 2006 Order shall include a duty to ensure that collecting systems which satisfy the requirements of Schedule 2 are provided for every agglomeration with a population equivalent which is greater than 2,000.
(3) Paragraph (2) shall not apply where:
(a)the Department is satisfied that the establishment of a collecting system is not justified because it would produce no environmental benefit, or
