Progress By The Numbers

Around 367km is believed to have been impacted during the flood event, with 316km already inspected using PMAs CCTV pipe inspection technology.

As a result PMA identified drains that contained pollutants such as oil deposits. These required specialised cleaning to remove the oil from the drains and prevent damage to Brisbane’s waterways and natural habitats.

So far, approximately 15km of enclosed drainage has been jetted for cleaning.

Additionally, 8,078 disaster-impacted gullies have been inspected with 312 gullies requiring cleaning, which has already been completed.

To conclude, a timely reminder from the Councillor: everyone can play their part in keeping our stormwater network clear. From lawn clippings to leaves and plastic litter, it can all block stormwater drains or make its way into our rivers. Be mindful of what you allow down the drain!
