Educational Resources

The City of Victoria manages three main underground services: water, sewer and stormwater. In Victoria there are separate systems for sewer and stormwater. Our stormwater infrastructure, the catch basins, pipes and mains and rainwater management methods such as rain gardens, cisterns and green roofs are both needed to sustainably manage the rain that falls in Victoria.
