Stormwater Drainage FAQ
Stormwater refers to rainwater that runs off surfaces such as roofs, driveways, and streets during and after rain events. It is important to manage this water effectively to prevent flooding and environmental damage.
This is where stormwater drainage comes in. It involves the collection, conveyance, and disposal of rainwater that runs off such surfaces, preventing water accumulation and flooding.
Effective stormwater management helps to prevent local flooding, reduce soil erosion, and protect water quality in local waterways. It involves controlling runoff and removing pollutants that stormwater collects as it moves across surfaces.
Types of stormwater drainage include:
- Drainage pipes to convey water away from properties.
- Retention basins that hold water temporarily.
- Permeable paving, allowing water to infiltrate into the ground.
- Rain gardens to slow runoff and promote absorption.
- Drainage cells which provide an underground catchment area for water.
In NSW, legal requirements for stormwater runoff management are stipulated by the AS/NZS 3500.3:2003 Plumbing and Drainage Part 3: Stormwater Drainage standard. Drainage systems must be connected to a legal point of discharge, such as a kerb and gutter or an inter-allotment drainage system. Property owners are responsible for ensuring their stormwater drainage systems comply with these requirements.
The National Construction Code (NCC) regulates drainage practices and must be followed when installing stormwater drainage.
