Stormwater Program

What is the Stormwater Program?

This is an initiative of the West Coast Council which aims to provide the community with improved infrastructure.  This program focuses on safety concerns, poor condition of the stormwater infrastructure, open drains, and also takes into consideration recommendations from the public.  Council believes that it is important to coordinate long-term strategies regarding our asset management to ensure longevity for our facilities and infrastructure. 

Why are we doing the Stormwater Program?

This program allows Council to continue implementing the vision adopted by the West Coast community in the West Coast Community Plan 2025, where accessibility, safety and usage along with well-planned assets and infrastructure were included as key outcomes. 

What sites are included?

A report was presented to Council for consideration, detailing the program and proposed sites for inclusion.  Criteria for selection was based on safety issues, asset condition and usage.
