Stormwater Pollution

Wastwater from roof cleaning flows directly into our creeks, rivers and waterways.

Roof and gutter downpipes connect directly to roadside gutters and stormwater drains. This means wastewater run-off from roof cleaning ends up in our creeks, rivers and the ocean. Pollutants, such as oxides, algae, paint flakes, concrete and sediment can kill seagrass, aquatic plants and marine life.

The Law

Allowing polluted wastewater to enter stormwater drains, roadside gutters or waterways is an offence under The Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997and may attract fines from $750 for an individual, $1500 for a corporation, or prosecution up to a maximum amount of $1,000,000 and a further maximum penalty of $120,000 for each day the offence continues.  Council decides what enforcement action to taken accordance with our Enforcement Policy.
