Stormwater outlet structure into Miami Lake

Stormwater drainage improvement works are progressing on Mountain View Avenue catchment in Miami and in Ernie Tebb Park.

Flooding has been known to affect roads, buildings and homes in the catchment, and these works are part of extensive drainage improvements planned for the area. This multi-stage upgrade is an important investment in our city's flood resilience.

Benefits to the community

  • Improved flood resilience for properties and roads in the catchment
  • Water that pools in the playing fields in Ernie Tebb Park draining much faster after rain events
  • Landscaping and native tree planting to restore and improve the overall park amenity
