The stormwater network is separate from the sewer network.
Each system discharges to different points:
- stormwater to Council stormwater
- stormwater to sea.
If a connection (stub connection) already exists from the Council main to the point of discharge (typically the property boundary), then building consent approval will be required to connect to the point of discharge.
If no connection exists then a Public Utility application must be made and approval given before you are allowed to connect.
