Supplemental information

D5 - Stormwater drainage and D7 - Stormwater management

These files enable design submissions to be compliant with Council's AusSpec Design Specifications: D5 - Stormwater drainage and D7 - Stormwater management.

Conceptual on-site detention (OSD) calculator to assist in concept level design / sizing of volumes and orifice for infill development only. The tool is not to be used for detailed design, ‘For Construction’ design purposes, or developments on lots larger than 1,200m2. Open the Excel file and click on the macro button “Start OSD calculator CLICK HERE” within the OSD Calculator sheet to initiate the macro-based program. If this tool has been used to assist in development of a conceptual stormwater design for DA purposes, please provide a screenshot of the entire OSD calculator window with the stormwater plan.
