As extreme weather events occur across the world with increasing frequency, flooding and poor stormwater drainage cost the Australian economy between $377 million and $30 billion per year, and this number is rising.

Not only do storms and flooding cause extreme damage to housing, roads, riverbanks and other civil infrastructure, but they also cause many unnecessary deaths of innocent people and animals.

End Unnecessary Stormwater Damage!

We can’t stop the rain from pouring, but we can manage how we deal with it.

With the correct stormwater systems in place, we can alleviate the potential problems caused by the destructive capabilities of stormwater runoff.

By capturing, cleaning and channelling excessive stormwater, we can turn it into usable water that benefits the Australian landscape.

If you’re considering ways to improve stormwater drainage and protect your city council, shire council or property development, then we can help you think smart and plan ahead to ensure your stormwater management systems are in place before the next big deluge!

With our large-scale underground stormwater treatment train systems, we can remove the majority of pollutants down to the smallest size particles, helping you reclaim open parkland spaces and use the treated stormwater to irrigate trees and landscape areas, creating shade (cooling our urban spaces) and making council areas and developments more habitable for the community.

How Can We Help?

If stormwater drainage is your team’s responsibility, then we’re here to help you.

With our simple three-step process, we’ll:

  1. Consult with you to discover the best integrated stormwater management solutions for your project or requirements, with an aim to save you money and resources,
  2. Create the perfect stormwater system based on your specific needs (no project is too extensive or beyond our capacity),
  3. Construct quality stormwater drainage systems using market-leading technology and reliable contractors to fulfil the vision.


We’re in the business of creating solutions to solve the challenges of stormwater management. It’s for this reason that we’ve developed a stormwater system that follows an easy four-part process.

We excel in the removal of the finer small TSS (Total Suspended Solids) particles below 63 Microns, which means our stormwater systems last longer and we require less operations and maintenance (O&M) servicing on our storage systems, as we treat the stormwater before our tanks. 

With the removal of these finer TSS particles, the whole stormwater harvesting system becomes more efficient and effective, allowing you to capture, store and reuse stormwater for irrigating landscapes, flushing toilets with less O&M and wear and tear on post-treatment and pumping stations.

Our state-of-the-art stormwater systems use recycled plastic because we genuinely care about the environment and the impact we make over the long term. As a company, we are continually innovating and aim to always be at the leading edge of our field.

If you want to work with the best company in stormwater drainage and urban stormwater management, then get in touch, and we’ll be happy to talk to find out more about your situation and see how we can help!

Award-Winning Stormwater Harvesting for Yarra City Council

We are very proud to announce the Engineering Excellence Award presented by IPWEA Victoria to the Yarra City Council for their forward-thinking Stormwater Harvesting Scheme at Edinburgh Gardens supported by City West Water and in conjunction with FRÄNKISCHE.

The $1.6 million stage 2 upgrade to the Edinburgh Gardens Stormwater Harvesting Scheme was completed in 2020 and was part of the City of Yarra’s Integrated Water Management Plan (2020) which included the installation of a 1ML underground storage system using our Rigofill ST-B geocellular blocks, as well as upgrades to the existing drainage system.

The objective of the project was to further improve stormwater runoff quality and provide alternative water sources for the irrigation of Edinburgh Gardens, reducing the reliance on potable water supplies.

FRÄNKISCHE was instrumental in delivering on the vision created by the City of Yarra Council and we commend them for their action in improving their environment.
