Chermside is a suburb located on the north side of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It is a major destination along Queensland Transport’s future Northern Busway. It is bordered by Indooroopilly, in the west; Carindale, situated in the southeast; and Mount Gravatt, on the south side of the region and has been labelled as a mini-CBD. This was originally named Downfall Creek; then later on was changed to Chermside in 1903 named after Major-General Sir Herbert Chermside, the Governor of Queensland. The suburb is the home to Queensland’s largest shopping center which contains a 3 story Myer and a 16 screen cinema complex. It was the first drive-in shopping center as well as the largest single level establishment in Australia which also houses Brisbane’s first Apple store.
Different infrastructures continue to rise alongside with the economic outpouring of the suburb. These may entail unwanted occurrences of damaged pipes leading to sand, silt and other foreign substances to enter the holes causing blocked pipelines. These substances create a thick layer of clog which prevents water to flow effectively. The area is also considered to have numerous mature trees, tree roots can also crawl into these open holes causing obstructions in these water pipes. To add to that, leaves, foliage and any other garden waste could also be washed into the drains preventing a smooth stream.
