The City's draft Stormwater Services Strategy is now
available to view.
The 10-year strategy outlines the City's approach to
managing the rising demands on our drainage network and stormwater systems.
We maintain an extensive range of stormwater assets, with
a combined value of more than $600 million. Including 1900km of pipes, more than 64,000
stormwater pits, 300 retarding basins, 20 pump stations and more than 150km of
open stormwater drains.
We expect to see our drainage network expand by
about 20 per cent and water sensitive urban design assets double within
the next decade to cope with population growth and significant economic
development across the municipality.
The strategy will be the foundation document for the
City’s stormwater management practices and actions.
It contains practical measures to help us achieve baseline
levels of service for all 25 catchment management units over the next decade (see maps below).
Community engagement on the draft strategy will commence with drop in sessions at the locations listed below. We encourage you to provide feedback on the draft strategy via our online survey below.
