Council’s drainage network has been constructed to a capacity based on typical rainfall patterns. If a more significant rainfall event is experienced and the underground drainage is overwhelmed, the roads and Council reserves typically become the pathway for this ‘overland flow’. This is normal and acceptable. Please drive to conditions and Council advises not to drive through areas of inundation.
Overland flow threatening property such as residences should be reported to Council. Inundated front or backyards of property is acceptable and generally no action by Council will be taken. Property owners may manage their internal drainage as long as they comply with regulations and do not adversely affect neighbouring property.
