Port River East Stormwater Management Plan

The Port River Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) aims to improve understanding of stormwater management related issues, while guiding future decision making about how we manage flood risk and improve the quality of stormwater. The catchment area covered by the SMP includes the suburbs of Port Adelaide, Queenstown, Alberton and Rosewater.

The plan has been prepared by the City of Port Adelaide Enfield Council, with joint funding from the Stormwater Management Authority and Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resource Management Board in partnership with a consultant team led by Southfront.

Community consultation has been completed and feedback from the community and technical steering group will be reviewed to inform the final Stormwater Management Plan.

For more information on this project, please contact Tony Tran, Project Lead - Stormwater, on 8405 6600 or
