Wynnum West has been considered as a post World War II suburb is located 13 kilometers east of Brisbane CBD. It was declared as a separate suburb in 1975. The population of the region reached 11,745 based on the 2011 Australian census and a possible attraction includes continuous developments or residential and commercial establishments ranging from department stores and supermarkets, shops, groceries and offices.
The population has sustained increase since the 1990s as an aftermath of more dwellings being constructed, and the suburb is now largely residential with a small commercial area on Wynnum Road. These developments may directly impact fixed pipelines underground and sometimes causes leaks and cracks on pipes. When this occurs, these openings capture soil and small rock particles. When water flushes out, they leave residues which could solidify and narrows the passageway of water causing a slow current. Openings of such can also invite tree roots to get the water supply they need, not knowing that they eventually buildup, grow longer and large enough to cause an obstruction of water. Commercial establishments are signs of the suburbs progress but unfortunately, they also contribute to the issue of blocked drains. With the continuous flow of greasy and oily products, chemicals and foreign materials in the underground pipes, they mix with cold water and in turn solidify forming a thick mass that sticks on the side of the pipes. They congeal and hinder the stream of water to its destination.
