It served as an important landmark of wool trading and was once Australia’s largest submarine base during the Second World War. Wool exports increased in the early 20th century marking the region as an essential economic contributor.
Throughout time, most of the wool stores and factories were converted to residential apartments; the area has been altered from a riverside industrial hub to a mostly high density residential area. There was an influx of people coming in to the suburb which also contributed to the increase of foreign materials and undissolved particles to build up onto the drain pipe walls. Dirt, skin flakes and hair strands binds to the linings of pipes causing these to build up which later on solidifies resulting to accumulation reducing effective water flow.
