The City maintains over 2500 kilometres of stormwater drainage. Upgrades are complete on the Boundary Street drainage catchment in Currumbin Waters. This is part of our ongoing upgrade and renewal program.

This upgrade will improve flood resilience. Work took place in 3 stages over several years.

Benefits for the community

  • Increased capacity of the drainage system
  • New infrastructure to replace ageing infrastructure
  • Reduced severity of localised flooding
