Drains maintained by property owner
Driveway culverts are usually to provide access to private property.
Maintenance and clearing of driveway culverts is the responsibility of the property owner.
Sometimes we will help clear culverts if a blockage appears to have been caused by a council asset for example crushed rock from a road washed into a drain during a storm.
