We’ve experienced many stormwater drainage problems in housing estates , factories and in our local Gold Coast areas . Many of the problems associated with storm water is that your neighbours might raise there levels in there backyards with new sheds or new swimming pools.
Without putting proper drainage to the street or parkland areas, its causing flooding down stream and into your house or property. Time and time again we see inadequate drainage . And with heavy rain we’ve experienced recently peoples homes have been in the firing line. With more water storage it can be used on the property or farm. Having clean water is not only good for the pastures and grass fields its good for horses and other stock animals.
Stormwater drainage is very simple to put together with the right guys like A B Earthworks . We install stormwater pits in the right location to relive the deluge and control the water. Making under ground or above ground catchment areas as well as diverting water through the right size pipes will help your gardens. Saving wetlands, growing food, native plants and the wildlife will benefit from water storage.
Council will not help the home owners and take no responsibility at all in cleaning up peoples property. All it would of taken is a few pipes into the back yard and make some drainage pits to take the water and slow it down. Having control of water you can gravity feed your whole garden. We should help our neighbours with these problems to make a better life for us all. Regards Mark Sadler.
