Surface Water Drainage and Charging Reviews

Paying too much to discharge your run off (surface water) to the local river?

Several water companies charge their commercial customers for surface water and highway drainage disposal on a site area basis. This often leads to unnecessary costs being incurred by clients.

At Peak we can check whether you are currently being charged the correct amount for your site. We have uncovered errors in the site plans used by the water companies for charging purposes, the solution of which has led to savings at some sites of thousands of pounds per year.

We will complete an initial check of your charging band for free to check whether you are being charged correctly based on the layout and likely drainage routes at your site.

If we feel there is the possibility of an immediate saving without additional re-drainage work, we can complete all necessary investigations and negotiation with the water companies to reduce your charges on a 'no win-no fee' basis. If we fail to make you a saving on your annual charge, we will not charge you for this service.

Following on from our initial investigation and negotiation, our expertise in the field of drainage systems can also be utilised to devise alternative solutions for the disposal of surface water which can ultimately lead to huge cost savings. Reviews are completed by our own specialist staff and our recommendations are tailored to individual circumstances.

We have also been able to help clients with reducing their charges due to estimated bills and over charging.
