Overflow relief gullies (ORG)

How do I maintain my overflow relief gully?

  • The overflow relief gully belongs to the property owner.  We recommend you keep your overflow relief gullies and all other plumbing and drainage in good condition and operating correctly.
  • Check overflow relief gullies are not covered by landscaping, garden beds, pot plants or other items.
  • Regularly check that the metal or plastic grill covering the gully can easily pop-off to allow any overflow to occur.
  • Make sure any overflows can drain away quickly so there is no build-up around the gully or house.
  • Check storm water in your yard does not build up and flood your overflow relief gully.

N.B. – Property owners own and are responsible for all internal Plumbing on their property.
