Wilston is a suburb north-east of Newmarket, five km north of central Brisbane. Immediately on its south end is the Enoggera Creek. The suburb was named after Wilston House established in 1876 in Watson Street, Newmarket, and was considered an outlying district of Newmarket. The 2011 Australian census recorded a population of 3,872.
For the past few years, the area increased popularity due to continuous development and transformation alongside the revamping of Kedron Brook leading to the renewal process that was rolled out across majority of inner Brisbane. This further led to more people coming in the region which increased the demand for more residential housing and dwellings. Constructions may lead to continuous ground movements which may trigger damages to pre-installed underground pipes especially that of old and deteriorating ones. Once this happens, sand, dirt and other foreign materials slowly buildup causing a blockage of water to flow effectively. Other outdoor occurrences include tree roots digging its way deep underground looking for the nearest source of water which is quite abundant in these cracked lines causing more damage. The tree roots forms a root ball causing it to grow massively becoming an obstruction in the water lines. As any household owners, common causes of blocked drains include grease, fat and oil which slide down kitchen sinks and pipes and over time creates a slid residue in the linings of the drain pipes which may cause dirtier water to shoot up the source.
