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.
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.
