Drainage Maintenace

The City has over 4600 drainage pits to manage stormwater capture throughout the City’s road network.  As part of this drainage network there is an additional 70 kilometers of underground pipes directing the stormwater to drainage basins. The City engages a contractor to clean out stormwater drainage pits and pipes throughout the City.

The Council Policy for drainage cleaning has determined that all drainage pits and pipes will be cleaned out once every year.

Note: The contractor will not be able to clean out drainage infrastructure in areas where cars are parked.
