About Us

Stormwater Sydney was founded in 2017 to provide construction, inspection, audit, maintenance and repair services to homes across Sydney. Since then, we have expanded our services to include industry and local government, SMART Stormwater systems and finding long term solutions to water runoff and flooding issues.

Our Approach

When it comes to your stormwater needs, we make the difficult easy. And we’re damn good at it.

We provide an end-to-end stormwater management service, meaning we are on-site from the design and construction phases through to the certification, maintenance and repair of your stormwater systems.


With over 30 years of industry experience, we know first-hand the damage that can be caused by incorrectly managed or unmaintained stormwater systems.

There have been some significant improvements in the way we manage our waterways, with many of these successes at the local and catchment levels driven by Councils and other authorities. However, without a dedicated servicing body for Sydney’s stormwater infrastructure, changes at the property level have not necessarily resulted in success.

We specialise in the stormwater infrastructure built for residences and commercial buildings with our onsite stormwater management services.


Based in Sydney, we employ locals. Having spent their lives working across water and building industries, our staff can provide you with the solutions you need to address your stormwater problems.

Made up of a range of professions and skillsets, our team includes plumbers, builders, landscapers and engineers. So no matter the size or scope of your stormwater system, we have the skills to design, build and maintain it.


Stormwater Sydney regularly advertises for new roles on SEEK and other platforms. We are happy to accept applications for both advertised and other roles via email at careers@stormwatersydney.com. Recent roles have included;

An Office Manager to help us organise our business.

A Service Manager looking after our facilities and strata stormwater maintenance.

A Sales Consultant to talk with our large range of clients across Sydney.



All Councils require the installation of stormwater devices on all new premises. These requirements usually include a Section 88 Instrument requiring ongoing maintenance of any device across the life span of those devices.

Many Councils have different requirements which make it hard to comply with. While most Councils publish their requirements on their websites, Stormwater Sydney has identified the requirements of all Councils, ensuring nothing is missed on our inspection and audits.
