Waterway Quality - Maroondah City Council

All the stormwater from our streets washes into the underground stormwater system and then into our creeks. This stormwater contains a range of pollutants including: Commercial runoff, including oil, chemicals and waste General litter such as plastic bags and cigarette butts Sediment runoff from building sites Chemical runoff from industrial sites Fertiliser and pesticide runoff These pollutants impact on the quality of water in our creeks by: You can help to protect our waterways by making these simple actions: At Home Make sure all rubbish, including cigarette butts, is put in a bin Do not sweep leaves and green waste into the gutter.

Managing our stormwater - Maroondah City Council

Council's underground stormwater drains have been designed to a capacity of a one in five year magnitude storm, which is consistent with the industry standard. However, these recent storms were in the magnitude of a 1 in 20 year and 1 in 50 year event, based on the Bureau of Meteorology’s statistical data. To have them occur so close to each other, and on such a large scale, raises concerns about how often we can expect these types of storms in the future. The severity and frequency of the storms highlights the need to change the way we design and manage our stormwater. Council’s role in stormwater drainage Council has a responsibility to property owners to ensure that the Council owned and operated drainage system is clear and functioning so it can capture any stormwater.

Our Water - Maroondah City Council

Maintaining and improving the availability and quality of water is critical to ensuring this survival. There are numerous pressures on the quality of our waterways and water supply. Melbourne's growing population and climate change will result in less available water for more people. Urban development threatens the qualiy of water in our waterways from stormwater pollution such as oils, detergents, paints, building materials and litter. Yarra Valley Water.
