Stormwater

Our stormwater system directs rainwater and surface run-off to creeks, rivers, lakes and the ocean. Unlike the wastewater, or sewerage system, stormwater does not need to be treated.

The wastewater system collects household waste from toilets, baths, washing machines, the kitchen, etc and delivers it to a wastewater treatment works. These two systems are separate, and it is illegal to cross-connect the two systems.
