What to do when there is a plumbing blockage

Blockages in Private or Public Infrastructure

Property owners must maintain the service pipes on their property. If you need a blockage cleared or repairs to your house drainage connection, you will need to contact a licensed plumber.

Location plans for Council’s house drainage connections are available for $10 from Council’s Customer Service center. Please complete the Request Form.(PDF, 305KB)
