Rain that runs off your property is called stormwater. For new buildings stormwater must be connected to a legally approved point of discharge. Usually these are our underground drains, kerbs or open table drain.
Types of stormwater connections
- Council underground drain in the street
- Council underground drain within the property easement
- Private owners corporation drainage
- To kerb and channel
- To open table drain
- OR to Melbourne Water drainage assets (such as main drains, creeks and streams)
A Road Opening works permit is required to install any new stormwater connection.
