Powers for making sewers.

18. Any sanitary authority may carry any sewer through, across, or under any road, or any street or place laid out as or intended for a street, or under any cellar or vault which may be under the pavement or carriageway of any street, and, after giving reasonable notice in writing to the owner or occupier into, through, or under any lands whatsoever within their district.

They may also (subject to the provisions of this Act relating to sewage works without the district of the sanitary authority) exercise all or any of the powers given by this section without their district for the purpose of outfall or distribution of sewage.
