During storms, cyclones and heavy wet weather, our sewer network can be overloaded with large volumes of stormwater. This can cause sewage overflows. These overflows can happen on your property.
Here’s what you can do to help minimise sewage overflows:
- Check your downpipe is connected to the stormwater system, not the sewer network
- Check your Overflow Relief Gully is not covered or blocked and the grate is loosely fitted.
