Stormwater

Stormwater drainage is a major, usually unseen infrastructure asset throughout the City.  Whilst a detailed inventory and valuation of this asset is currently underway to comply with the requirements of the 1993 Local Government Act, it is estimated that the City possesses 233 kilometres of storm drains and channels with an approximate value of $83m.
