    I've read the charter and can't see any reason not to post this here, but if it better belongs elsewhere (eg. property), please move it. We would like to ascertain the exact route an underground water culvert takes in our area. We can see from Google Earth the straight line it would take, however we suspect the culvert runs in a different direction. Do local councils make their drainage maps available for viewing to members of the public? Do they charge for this?

    look Josip, it's just be cheaper and less hassle to pay the water charges than to go to all that trouble of tapping into the mains yourself :D

    Seriously I imagine it's foul water you are talking about (surface water drainage etc) and the council would have maps of their own infrastructure for their own records (or at least I hope they would). I'm sure if you had a query and approached the department directly in your local council they would help you out. They are usually helpful if you need anything like that for new develoments / digs etc. Not so sure if it's a problem / issue that they may have created over ROW or ownership that they'd be as quick to help.

    Could always survey it yourself or get a profession company in to map it?

    as far as i know, most councils maintain a map of water, drainage, sewage, etc, etc.
    first stop is to your local county council.
