What is a Point of Discharge Report?
A Point of Dischange Report maps out the legal point of discharge from a property. The legal point of discharge is a Council-specified place from where a property's stormwater must be let out. It’s usually a stormwater drain/pit, where available, or a street kerb and channel.
This report also advises the direction in which to connect stormwater runoff from a building.
Do I need a Point of Discharge Report?
You need a Point of Dischange Report if you’re applying to do building work that includes a stormwater drainage system. Your building surveyor must also consider this report before issuing a building permit.
Please note: a Point of Dischange Report doesn’t give you permission to carry out the connection. It also doesn’t provide a plan of stormwater drains on your land.
