Street drainage


To help slow the spread of the coronavirus, Council is taking a number of public health precautions including closing many of our facilities. In addition, many Council events and activities are cancelled. Please visit our COVID-19 page to see what is impacted and for more details about how coronavirus is impacting Randwick City.


Council control of drainage infrastructure

The majority of drainage infrastructure in our area is under the care and control of Randwick City Council.

Other drainage infrastructure, generally consisting of large trunk lines and associated pits, is controlled by Sydney Water. Some drainage lines under state roads are controlled by NSW Department of Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).

Drainage works we carry out

Council undertakes a variety of work to its drainage infrastructure, including clearing of pits and pipes, reconstruction or relining of old or dilapidated pipes and pits, and constructing new drainage infrastructure to increase capacity.

Flood management

In addition to the maintenance and upgrade of our existing drainage network, Council is also committed to managing flooding.

Catchment modeling and assessment allows Randwick City Council to develop strategies for flood risk management. Several Flood Studies have been completed with efforts now centered on developing Floodplain Risk Management Plans for the catchments studied to date.
