Stormwater Pipeline Proposed for Dunedoo

Plans are being prepared for a proposed stormwater drainage project in Dunedoo.

“The project is being developed in response to concerns raised by residents in Dunedoo” said Warrumbungle Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Denis Todd.
 
“The proposed drainage project will control stormwater flows but will also improve street appearance and safety by reducing erosion of the roads caused by flooding stormwater.”

Concerns have been raised by residents who live on the Eastern side of Dunedoo regarding to the lack of infrastructure to control stormwater flows. Concerns raised include reports from residents in Bullinda Street and Yarrow Street between the streets of Wallaroo and Wargundy that they have experienced storm water running through their properties.
 
“The purpose of the project is to control stormwater flows coming down Wallaroo Street from Talbragar Street and Adelyne Street.  The project will aim to collect stormwater at the intersection of Bullinda Street and Wallaroo Street, which has long been the source of damaging stormwater flows in streets downstream”, said Cr Todd.

Cr Todd continued by saying, “the project involves construction of a network of underground pipes and collection pits in Wallaroo Street, Yarrow Street and Wargundy Street.  The proposed underground pipeline network outlet is in Wargundy Street near the tennis courts with outflows then flowing into the Golf Club dam.”

“Council is encouraging any residents or property owners who have questions or concerns about the project to contact Council’s Technical Services Department,” said Cr Todd.

The Stormwater Pipeline Proposal plans are now on display and open for public comment. Plans are on display at the Dunedoo Library, 42 Bolaro Street, Dunedoo.
