Residents with stormwater issues invited to tell council

Residents of Boongala Ave, Empire Bay, have been invited to contact Central Coast Council if they experienced stormwater issues at their property.

The invitation comes after Cr Jilly Pilon asked council to assess the extent of drainage issues in the avenue.

In a report to be tabled this Tuesday night, (June 11) Roads and Technical Services unit manager Ms Jeanette Williams wrote that Boonbala Ave had a flat natural topography was in a low lying area.

"During periods of heavy rainfall and tidal fluctuations, nuisance flooding can occur," she wrote.

"This localised flooding (ponding water) can be slow to drain due to the minimal natural fall in either direction.

"In addition, the drains may become charged with water at high tide which further reduces the capacity of the existing drainage system.

"Due to the low lying nature of the area, installation of a piped drainage system is unlikely to improve the drainage of the area.

"Therefore, the existing roadside table drains are considered to be the most effective means of drainage in Boongala Ave.

"Council's maintenance staff carry out routine maintenance inspections, including a review of the table drains."

She said work was prioritized on a risk basis with any localised flooding predominantly occurring within the road reserve and does not enter habitable residences.

"Should any resident experience issues at their property due to the stormwater, they are invited to contact Council via our customer service platforms to make a report for investigation and action," the report concluded.
