Council maintains 93km of pipelines and associated infrastructure. Our team aims to reduce the run-off of rainwater from public sites such as roads, footpaths and parks. You can request maintenance or report damage to any of Council's infrastructure by lodging a Service Request or contacting Council on (02) 9911 3555. Before lodging a request, use the image references below to ensure that the stormwater drain/pit is part of Council's infrastructure.
