There are many different ways soil and dirt can be washed into the stormwater drain:

  • When soil being delivered to your home is dumped on the footpath and spills into the gutter.
  • People sweep their paths and driveway and sweep the dirt into the gutter.
  • Soil from garden beds gets washed into the stormwater drain when it rains or if the garden is over- watered.
