Request for Legal Point of Discharge

Request for Legal Point of Discharge(PDF, 247KB)

Stormwater runoff must be collected within the private property and then drained to the legal point of discharge (LPD). The LPD is a point specified by Council where storm water from a property must be discharged. Council’s primary nominated point of discharge is generally to the nearest pit or drain of adequate depth and capacity.

An application for LPD triggers the Building Services Team to formally request the Engineering Team to determine the point of discharge. This generally relates to proposals for new buildings or constructions.
