Discharges through new drains or sewers

4.—(1) Where in relation to any premises having a drain or sewer communicating with a public sewer—

(a)a water authority, acting in pursuance of section 42 (power of water authority to alter drainage system of premises) of the Public Health Act 1936, have closed that drain or sewer (in this regulation referred to as “the old drain or sewer”) and, after the appointed day, have provided instead of it, in pursuance of the said section 42, another drain or sewer (in this regulation referred to as “the new drain or sewer”) communicating with a public sewer, and

(b)immediately before the date on which the old drain or sewer was so closed a consent of the water authority had effect for the purposes of the 1937 Act or, either as a deemed consent or as an actual consent, under section 43 of the Act in relation to a discharge of trade effluent through the old drain or sewer into the public sewer with which it communicated,

that consent shall have effect, subject to any necessary modifications, as a consent for the purposes of the 1937 Act, or as a deemed consent or an actual consent under the said section 43, as the case may be, in relation to any discharge through the new drain or sewer into the public sewer with which it communicates.

(2) Where any consent has effect by virtue of paragraph (1) above, the provisions of the 1937 Act, of Part V (Trade Effluents) of the Public Health Act 1961, and of Part II (Pollution of Water) of the Act shall have effect in relation to that consent in like manner as they had effect in relation thereto before the old drain or sewer was closed.

(3) In this regulation any reference to a consent includes a reference to any conditions to which that consent is subject.
