Drainage and sewerage are related areas of expertise.

Generally drainage refers to systems that are used to run off excess water to the sea, rivers, reservoirs or some other suitable place. Drainage systems can be man made but are often natural.

Sewerage systems are a more specialised type of drainage system and are used to carry away waste water and solids to an appropriate location. Sewerage systems are more likely to be man made or engineered structures.

As sewerage systems tend not to be open to the air they will often involve specific engineering considerations.
