The legal point of discharge is a point specified by Council where stormwater from a property must be discharged. The point is usually Council’s stormwater drain where available, or street kerb and channel, or may require design and construction of outfall drainage to Council’s closest drain via easement, nature strip, footpath or road. For Stormwater drainage requirements refer to our Design Guidelines.
We provide direction on the legal point of discharge for both existing properties and the redevelopment of residential, commercial and industrial developments.
