Drinking water supply changes - Kimberley Park Water Supply Zones
The maintenance at the Kimberley Park Water Supply Zones that commenced at the beginning of July, was completed on 24 August 2015. The program was undertaken to ensure that the water supply continues to meet the stringent requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
The water supply from Seqwater returned to normal operation on the 24 August 2015. However, it may have taken up to a week for the new water to travel through the network to our customers. It was anticipated that customers would notice a decrease in the chlorine taste in their water during the first week (24 to 31 August 2015) following the completion of the maintenance and disinfection program. Discoloured water was not expected to be experienced as a result of the return to normal operation. However, customers who are experiencing persistent discoloured water are encouraged to contact Logan City Council on 3412 3412.
Fact sheets available via the links below provide frequently asked questions, key information surrounding the maintenance, and includes a map reflecting the suburbs impacted during the maintenance.

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 lessening the risk of stormwater entering the wastewater system, Logan City Council is committed to significantly reducing the number of wastewater overflows that occur during wet weather.
With this goal in mind, Council undertakes systematic inspection programs to identify defective, improper and illegal stormwater connections to the wastewater system, in accordance with the provisions of section 134 of the Local Government Act 2009. Details of the inspection programs are included below.
For further information please contact Council's Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance on (07) 3412 9600.
Systematic Inspection Program - Rochedale South
An inspection program will occur from 6 October 2015 to 23 December 2015 in selected areas of Rochedale South, which suffer from overflows during severe wet weather.
The inspection program will be coordinated by the Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance and the inspections will be conducted by authorised persons.
Systematic Inspection Program - Loganlea, Cornubia and Daisy Hill
An inspection program in Loganlea, Cornubia and Daisy Hill 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.
