Stormwater management
Stormwater contains pollutants and, when they enter our waterways, they can devastate the natural environment. Stormwater Management canterbury bankstown Stormwater contains pollutants and, when they enter our waterways, they can devastate the natural environment. Stormwater Drainage and Greywater; Environment

 

​​Stormwater is rainwater that flows across roads, roofs, footpaths, car parks and other hard surfaces, into stormwater drains and waterways. As it runs over these surfaces it often picks up pollutants like rubbish, sediment, detergents, leaf litter and car oils. 

When these pollutants enter our waterways they can have a devastating impact on the natural environment. To minimise the environmental impact, stormwater is carefully managed in number of ways.

You can also read our pages about Pollution Control Devices​ and Water Se​nsitive Ur​ban Design​, as well as The Crest Sustainable Stormwater Management. There's also a page on Roads and Stormwater.

Our Infrastructure Planning Team caters for the strategic monitoring of the condition, functionality and renewal of our City's stormwater drainage network and flood mitigation structures.

The team can provide catchment-wide and localised information on flooding and the drainage network, as well as various flood modelling

You will need to fill out the Stormwater Information Application Form to access this information however, it is recommended you call the Team prior to submitting the form.

Stormwater Levy​

There is a stormwater levy in place for the Planning, construction and maintenance of drainage systems, stormwater treatment measures and stormwater harvesting and use projects. It also helps with education programs, inspections, clean-ups and monitoring efforts. Of course, it also pays for staff to administer the stormwater management service charge as well.
