Sunnybank Hills is a residential suburb proximately south of Beenleigh Road and is situated 15 kilometres south of Brisbane CBD. It is a large suburb and is connected to the suburbs of Calamvale, Coopers Plains, Sunnybank, Macgregor, Algester, Acacia Ridge and Runcorn. The suburb recorded a population of 16,830 as documented by the 2011 Australian Census.
The area has numerous ridges and hills, with lower wetter areas in the north and east. There are many parks and greenspaces in the area. Due to the topography and location of the suburb, 90% to 95% of all drain blockages in the region is caused by tree roots. These roots can reach a radius of 2.5 times the height of the actual tree, these roots vigorously dig its way down to look for the nearest supply of water and nutrients and is evidently present in pipes and water lines underground. When these pipes are cracked and opened, the leaks became passageway of roots to enter the pipes, as they stay there; they grow bigger impeding water to flow effectively. The opening in the pipes also invites sand and other foreign particles to enter and as they build up, they slow down and in worst cases hinder any form of liquids to pass through. The water then back flows causing imminent flooding and overflow of water to the source. These can cause inconveniences to nearby establishments and dwellings as it entails more time and effort in removing and will cost considerably high if the source of blockage will not be removed.
