22-23 Stormwater Renewal & Upgrade Program

Project description

Council undertakes an annual program to renew and enhance existing stormwater infrastructure across the Local Government Area. The program involves the following work types: 

The Stormwater Renewal/Upgrade Program involves the following work types:

  • Pipe relining which involves repairing cracked or broken pipes from the inside, without digging.  This creates a new, durable pipe inside the existing damaged pipe promoting better flow and sealing off cracks.
  • Replacement of aged items that are still performing adequately at their current size and design.
  • Upgrades to replace a pipeline with a larger size or a new service that did not exist previously. Generally these improvements are undertaken to address localised flooding or to implement flood plain management plan recommendations.
  • Upgrades designed to improve water quality within local catchments and water ways. These include gross pollutant traps and bioretention systems.

Expected Completion Date

June 2023


These programs are funded by Inner West Council

  • Stormwater Renewal - $1.4m
  • Stormwater Upgrade - $2.7m
