Inflow and infiltration program
The Logan wastewater system experiences large volumes of overflows during severe wet weather events, as occurred in January and February 2013. These types of events have a significant impact on the wastewater network, overwhelming its capacity and resulting in wastewater overflows into the environment.
Stormwater entering the wastewater network as a result of defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections, principally from residential connections, is a major cause of wastewater overflows. By identifying sources, and eliminating the risk of stormwater from entering the wastewater system, Logan City Council is committed to significantly reducing the number of wastewater overflows that occur during wet weather.
For further information relating to inflow and infiltration to the wastewater distribution network please visit our Wastewater Overflows page.
Systematic Inspection Program
Logan City Council recently undertook a systematic inspection program in accordance with the provisions of section 134 of the Local Government Act 2009 to identify defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections to the wastewater system. The inspection program was completed in May 2015 and Voluntary Compliance letters were sent to property owners where defects were identified. Council is currently liaising with property owners and providing assistance/advice where possible to ensure that these defects are rectified.
