Inflow and infiltration approved systematic inspection 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.
Approved Systematic Inspection Program - Inflow and Infiltration
Logan City Council resolved on 2 December 2014 to carry out an approved systematic inspection program in accordance with the provisions of section 134 of the Local Government Act 2009.
The purpose of the inspection program is to conduct inspections on private properties for the investigation and identification of defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections to the wastewater system in catchments within the city that suffer overflows during severe wet weather.
Defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections to the wastewater system are prohibited under the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008 and Plumbing and Drainage Act 2002.
The program will commence Monday 2 February 2015 and conclude Friday 1 May 2015.
Inspections may be conducted between the hours of 6.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Monday to Saturday.
It is the intention of Council that authorised persons will inspect premises in selected areas of Daisy Hill, Cornubia and Loganlea, as defined in the resolution.
A copy of the approved systematic inspection report may be requested from Council during the period of the program and will be provided free of charge.
