Stormwater Drainage on Private Property
It is the owner's responsibility to maintain any private stormwater drains and pipes that are located on private property. The property owner must also maintain any pipes located on Council land that form part of the property drainage system. Owners may be able to check existing stormwater plans in the properties DA files, but for older buildings these plans may not exist.
