Stormwater NSW links the diverse and multi-disciplinary interests of all stakeholders of the Stormwater Industry and represents them at both a state and national level. The Association is a not for profit organisation that exists only to serve its members.
Stormwater NSW promotes innovative and sustainable practice technologies, standards and policies that minimise adverse environmental, social and economic impacts. The Association also facilitates an understanding of the roles and responsibilities of agencies and partners in working to improve the management of our natural and built stormwater systems, provides an advisory and reference service for the industry and promotes the concept that stormwater is a resource.
The objective of Stormwater NSW is to enable local practitioners and the broad community to learn about available stormwater management and quality technologies, provide a platform which encourages interaction between the multiplicity of disciplines and parties engaged in our industry and encourage the development and understanding of new technologies. Our Association also provides opportunities for all interested practitioners and organisations to network within and across disciplines and to influence stormwater policy, legislation and industry guidelines at local and national levels.
Stormwater NSW is supported by the National Association and a strong network of state associations in Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

The Illawarra region has a number of contrasting coastal environments that present stormwater managers with some interesting challenges. In the northern areas there is the Illawarra escarpment, where short runoff times and marginal slope stabilities can result in flash flooding, carrying significant volumes of sediment. In the south, the escarpment gives way to coastal plain and estuarine environments, which in places have undergone both significant deterioration and, in more recent years, restoration work. Continuing urban expansion in these coastal areas needs to be carefully managed to ensure that sensitive receiving water environments and ecosystems are not endangered.
