Drains and Legal Point of Discharge
Council is responsible for the maintenance of Council owned storm water drainage. This includes drains and pits within streets and designated easements on private property.
Property owners are responsible for the maintenance of household drains up to and including the point where they connect into Council's drainage system. This is known as 'The Legal Point of Discharge' (regardless of whether this point is within the private property boundary or in Council road reserve).
Construction and maintenance of the driveway 'crossover' and culvert is also the responsibility of the property owner.
