The legal point of discharge is where stormwater from your property discharges into a Council managed drain or the street kerb and channel. To find this location, you must apply for a report to be generated. We cannot provide this information verbally.
You can find general information about infrastructure under your property on the Dial Before You Dig webpage. This is a free service.
You may need a legal point of discharge report when applying for a building permit.
What the report will not show
The legal point of discharge report will not tell you:
- the location of any internal property drainage
- the as-constructed conditions of a drain. Our drain details are a guide only. You must check the size, depth and offset of the drain on site and make sure the drain is not damaged
- details of stormwater downpipes and where they go on the property. You should contact a plumber to find this information
You must pay an application fee of $144.70 with your application.
