Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australian Standards are
subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new editions as
necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest
edition, and any amendments thereto.
Full details of all Australian Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australia
Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine ‘The
Australian Standard’, which subscribing members receive, and which gives details of new publications,
new editions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards.
Suggestions for improvements to Australian Standards, addressed to the head office of Standards
Australia, are welcomed. Notification of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australian Standard
should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

This Standard was issued in draft form for comment as DR 96170.

PREFACE

This Standard was prepared by the Joint Standards Australia / Standards New Zealand
Committee WS/20, Stormwater, to supersede (in part) AS 2180 — 1986, Metal rainwater
goods — Selection and installation, and AS 3500, National Plumbing and Drainage Code,
Part 3 — 1990: Stormwater drainage which will be withdrawn 5 June 1999.
This Standard is the result of a consensus among Australian and New Zealand
representatives on the committee to produce it as an Australian Standard.
This Standard is part of a series as follows:
AS 3500 National plumbing and drainage
3500.3.1 Part 3.1: Stormwater drainage — Performance requirements (this Standard)
3500.3.2 Part 3.2: Stormwater drainage — Acceptable solutions
This is a free 6 page sample. Access the full version at http://infostore.saiglobal.com.

Stormwater drainage — Methods for verification (Part 3.3) is in the course of preparation.
The performance-based format was chosen to foster innovation and facilitate the
introduction of new technologies.
This Standard specifies performance requirements that must be met in order for a
stormwater drainage system to provide the expected level of protection for people and
property from adverse effects of stormwater.
Part 3.2 specifies acceptable solutions that are deemed to satisfy Part 3.1 and the Building
Codes of Australia and New Zealand, for materials and products, and design and
installation of stormwater drainage systems.
Part 3.3 will specify methods for verification that are deemed to satisfy Part 3.1, for the
design and testing of stormwater drainage systems. Such methods are not exclusive.
This arrangement provides the flexibility for a design to utilize new technology where
appropriate, while providing certainty for those wishing to use a set of ‘proven’
requirements.
