The Hunters Hill local government area is primarily affected by overland flow flooding.

Overland flow flooding occurs as rainfall runoff moves towards downstream waterways.

A small portion of properties can be affected by mainstream flooding which occurs when runoff from streets and drains flow into waterways causing them to rise and inundate areas that are usually dry.

You can help protect your home against storm damage by:

  1. Regularly trimming your trees.
  2. Keeping your gutters clear.
  3. Ensuring water can flow away from your home.
  4. Replacing missing or damaged roof tiles.
  5. Ensuring your home is fitted with an electrical safety switch.
  6. Walking around your property checking for loose objects.
  7. Ensuring proper sealing of doors and windows.
  8. Checking for loose fence posts.

For more information on planning and preparing for storms, contact the State Emergency Service (SES): www.ses.nsw.gov.au or 132 500.

Needing an additional green waste pick up post the recent storms?

A paid collection is available through Council by calling 9879 9400.

Residents of Hunters Hill who pay for domestic waste are also entitled to two free household clean-ups of 2m³ per financial year for each household, with restrictions on what can be placed out for collection.
