Drainage Catchment Study

The City of Cockburn's Drainage Catchment Study opens in a new window has been prepared by Cardno on behalf of the City of Cockburn to:
  • Undertake a review of the existing 2009 Plan and the delivery of its recommendations
  • Review any relevant structure plans in developing areas so that new sub-division developments provide appropriate stormwater management and required infrastructure;
  • Review of the most recent customer requests related flooding issues received since 2009;
  • Review present condition of the Council’s Drainage Assets to identify weaknesses in the City’s drainage system and action plan for implementation of the Drainage Management Strategy (DMS);
  • Identify the reasons why existing drainage assets fail/deteriorate and therefore do not meet current performance standards and community expectations; and
  • Identify and establish the priority order in which any modifications and/or new works are to be installed, so that a clear direction is provided to the Council.
