Our goal is to provide and maintain a stormwater system that meets the needs of the whole community. 

The works that are often undertaken include investigating and upgrading existing pipe systems, replacement of damaged and poor condition infrastructure, installation of gross pollutant traps, installation of subsoil drainage, installation of erosion protection devices where required and systemic minor repairs and routine maintenance.

If you would like to report an issue or find out information on our stormater maintenance please see the Streets and Roads - Stormwater Drains page.

Stormwater Drainage Studies

As part of our stormwater management program we regularly undertake analysis of the existing stormwater drainage systems in our suburbs and public spaces. These studies provide information on the adequacy of the existing underground pipe/pit network and make recommendations for improving the capacity where required. Most recently, studies have been completed in;

  • Parap and Fannie Bay – 2017
  • Nightcliff – 2018

The outcomes of this work will help City of Darwin priorities upcoming stormwater upgrade work.

Benison Stormwater Upgrade

Stormwater upgrades have been completed along Benison Road, Winnellie. Following drainage problems, the existing pipe system has being upgraded to prevent flooding within neighboring properties.

Works were completed in December 2017.

Nudl Stormwater Upgrade

The upgrade of the existing stormwater drainage system in Nudl Street involves the construction of new underground pipes and pits in Nudl Street and Verburg Street to help alleviate some of the flooding problems occurring during major storm events. The need to upgrade this section of stormwater infrastructure was identified in the previously completed Stuart Park Stormwater Study.

  • Construction work is expected to commence in late 2018.
