Stormwater picks up contaminants as it flows over rooftops, roads and paths

Georges River - Stormwater programGeorges Riverkeeper’s Stormwater Program develops materials and events to improve stormwater management across the catchment, in recognition that stormwater from hardened urban landscapes is the main source of problems detrimentally effecting the Georges River.

Stormwater picks up contaminants as it flows over rooftops, roads and paths, plus can trigger overflows of sewage by overwhelming existing sewerage systems. The ongoing use of urban creeks as drains is incompatible with achieving liveability along the Georges River.
