Storm Water Disposal

Life in WA is pretty idyllic, until those winter storms roll in – then things start to feel a bit
apocalypse-y. So, you’ll need to prepare your house for these occasions by creating a system
for redirecting stormwater runoff, otherwise it can cause a lot of damage. Make sure you have
spoon drains, soak wells, or pipes directing the water into council drains. If you decide on a
soak well, the required distance from the home will depend on its depth and the soil type.
This might sound a bit technical, but for a class (A) site you’ll need no greater than the angle
of repose taken from the top of the footing to the base of the soak well.
