Toowong is a suburb of Brisbane that lies about 5kms to the west of the CBD. Due to its close proximity to the city, the suburb has a lot of history and contains a mix of older houses, apartment buildings and some higher density apartments. The area is popular with student, especially those that attend the University of Queensland, which lies in the neighbouring suburb of St Lucia.
Like much of the rest of suburban Brisbane, Toowong is quite a green suburb and contains many old trees with highly developed root systems. These are the main cause of blocked drains in the suburb. Many of the older houses and apartment have problems with tree roots blocking or crushing drainage pipes, which can cause issues with water backing up and overflowing. This is especially a problem around the many parks in the area and near the base of Mt Coot-Tha where flora and fauna is abundant.
Because the suburb has a lot of history and a number of very old houses, there is quite commonly problems with blocked up drainage due to collapsed pipes as well.
