The Code of Practice on
Sewerage and Sanitary Works is issued under Section 33 of the Sewerage and Drainage Act (Chapter 294). This guides the Qualified Persons in the proper planning and design of the sanitary and sewerage system. In stipulating only the minimum and mandatory design requirements to be complied with, it hopes that the Qualified Persons will exercise flexibility and creativity in their designs without compromising on functional and maintenance needs.
