We must approve any new or modified stormwater connection into our drains, waterways or open drainage channels. Connections must meet our technical requirements, differ depending on whether you are building a stormwater outlet or inlet.
Stormwater outlet - open waterway or drain
These are connections from a development to one of our open waterways or drains.
Outlet connections must be designed and constructed to our specifications. Our requirements are indicated in our creek enhancement work guidelines, though these may vary by site.
We will provide further details about the connection method once we have assessed your application.
Contractors needing to carry out work on underground drains must have a Permit to Work. To get a permit, they will need to complete a permit recipient training course.
Stormwater inlet - underground drains
These are connections from a development to one of our underground drains.
