All Line Plumbing specialises in stormwater drainage systems and are proficient with local council and authority regulations for connecting new buildings and properties to existing stormwater assets

All Line Plumbing can securely and accurately link your new home or development to the following stormwater drainage networks:

  • Sydney Water
  • Hunter Water
  • Local City Councils within NSW

In Australia the stormwater system is separate from the sewer system. Stormwater is the water draining off a property from the rain that falls on the roof and land, and everything it carries with it; such as soil, organic matter, litter, fertilisers from gardens and oil residues from driveways. These can pollute downstream waterways.

Unlike sewage, stormwater is generally not treated before being discharged to waterways and the sea.

By engaging a qualified and experienced team like All Line Plumbing, property owners in Sydney can address stormwater issues effectively, ensuring proper drainage function and compliance with regulatory requirements.

New Stormwater Drainage Designs

When a new stormwater connection is needed, an asset protection report is usually required prior to development to ensure the stormwater system is safe and environmentally beneficial. Some of the considerations when designing a stormwater system include:

  • Making sure that there are no illegal cross-connections of sewer and stormwater drains.
  • Ensuring that the stormwater system has adequate capacity to handle anticipated rainfall events and sufficient flow rates to prevent flooding or erosion.
  • Preventing rain from washing sediment such as sand and soil, into the stormwater drains.
  • Diverting stormwater from driveways, paths and paved areas to vegetated areas to catch and filter water rather than to the stormwater system.
  • Divert excess stormwater from hard surfaces such as driveways, patios and roofs through downpipes to water tanks or absorption trenches.
  • Considering the potential environmental impacts of the stormwater system on local ecosystems, habitats, and waterways, and incorporating measures to minimize adverse effects.

By addressing these considerations and working closely with Sydney Water and the local Council, property owners and developers can design stormwater systems that are safe, environmentally beneficial, and compliant with regulatory requirements.

Common Stormwater Drainage Issues

Sydney, along with its many council areas, face various stormwater drainage challenges due to its topography, urbanization, and weather patterns. Common issues include:

  • Heavy rainfall events leading to localised flooding in low-lying areas, streets, and properties.
  • Debris, vegetation, and other obstructions can accumulate in stormwater drains, culverts, and channels, causing blockages and impeding water flow.
  • Aging or undersized stormwater infrastructure may struggle to cope with increased urban development, leading to system overloads and reduced efficiency.
  • Stormwater runoff can carry pollutants such as litter, chemicals, and sediment into water bodies, degrading water quality and harming aquatic ecosystems.

All Line Plumbing can repair damaged or deteriorating stormwater pipes, culverts, and other infrastructure within easement areas to restore proper function and prevent further issues. We will assure that any work carried out within stormwater easement areas complies with relevant regulations and council specifications by obtaining necessary permits and approvals as required.

Solving Stormwater Drainage Problems

The pipes and connections on your property are your responsibility and we recommend that these are regularly maintained. A homeowner can take simple steps to manage stormwater and reduce its environmental impact.

We suggest that you keep your gutters clean and select appropriate trees and shrubs for your garden which are suitable to be planted near and around water drain pipes. Take care with the substances used on your land as they can end up in the stormwater. Do not overuse fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides and look for organic alternatives.

People are often confused about the role councils are required to play regarding investigating and solving drainage problems on their property.

  • If the issue is solely on your property, then it is usually your problem to solve.
  • If the issue involves neighbouring properties, then in most cases it is not a council issue, unless one of the properties is undergoing development.
  • If the issue involves council controlled land or a council-approved development, then it is a council issue.
