Water Management

Stormwater Management Charge

As part of Council's commitment to improved stormwater infrastructure maintenance and healthy catchments; a Stormwater Management Charge (SMC) for residential and business premises has been implemented as part of the 2010/11 to 2015/16 Council Management Plan.

Stormwater Pollution Control at Work

All the stormwater running off your site runs into the river. It is against the law to allow any material to run from your site and into the river. Here are some ways to help stop stormwater pollution at your workplace.

Stormwater Pollution Control at Home

Gutters and drains take rainwater from our streets straight into creeks and rivers. So when it rains, stormwater runoff can carry with it pollution from around our homes and streets into the waterways we swim in and where animals and plants live.

Onsite Sewage/Septic

More than half of Wollondilly’s population lives in rural and rural-residential areas, where Sydney Water’s sewer system is unavailable. As such, there are over 5000 on-site sewage management systems installed in the Shire.

Floodplain Risk Management

Wollondilly has a number of areas subject to flooding. The Floodplain Development Manual sets out the management of flood risk in NSW. To receive flood information please complete the Application for Flood Information.

Natural Resources Access Regulator (NRAR)

The state's water regulator, NRAR, will be inspecting water bottlers and extraction companies in the Wollondilly Shire Council area in August and September.
