Drains and waterways
In our tropical climate, it is especially important that we manage our drains and waterways to minimise flooding and innundation risks, and to ensure that the water flowing through them is free from pollution.
Residents can help to keep our waterways and drains clean, clear and safe by:
- reporting blocked drains
- disposing of garden and household waste responsibly
- being aware of flood-prone areas
- educating children about the dangers of playing in drains
- disposing of commercial and chemical waste responsibly.
Council commissions the development of Drainage Management Plans to assist with sustainable asset management of drainage infrastructure, recommendations for improving immunity to flood waters and addressing water quality.
For information regarding these plans, contact Council on 1300 69 22 47 or email us.
Review historical flooding and storm tide surge information. Contact Council for an individual property assessment. Note: these maps are not fit for insurance eligibility determination purposes, nor are they suitable for the purpose of self-assessment as to whether a home on the property is immune to flooding. More
