This is just out of interest...
Some 15 years ago, I replaced my own water main; dug a trench to the
boundary of our property and laid a blue pipe, etc.
The water company called pretty promptly and connected it up.
Today and all week, the water company are renewing all main water pipes
in our street. There's a trench in our street. I was very surprised
to see the end of my plastic pipe,
.......connected to their lead pipe!!!!!
What d'you make of that!
If the trench remains when they've gone, I'll take a photo.
