Chlorine dosing of water supply during hotter months

Recent events in South East Queensland have highlighted the need for effective disinfection of drinking water.

A small amount of chlorine is needed in the water supply to make sure that it stays disinfected. During the summer months, as the water in our network warms up, we add chlorine at strategic points around the city. This helps make sure that the water supply remains safe to drink for our community.

At these times, some residents may notice a slight chlorine odour and taste in their water. This can be removed by putting a jug of drinking water in the fridge overnight.

The level of chlorine in our water network is kept well within health guidelines and is regularly monitored to make sure it is lower than required under the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

If you use water for special purposes, like an aquarium, you should take measures to allow for changes in chlorine levels over summer.

Logan South Wastewater Treatment Plant B

In 2018/2019, we started to look for potential sites for a modern sewerage (wastewater) treatment facility in Logan. This facility is needed to service new developments between Park Ridge and Yarrabilba in the coming years. The planned facility is currently called Logan South Wastewater Treatment Plant B (Logan South WWTP B).

Current status

At the Ordinary Council meeting of 16 April 2019, Council selected a final site for the Logan South WWTP B. The site is at Pleasant View Road in Chambers Flat.

The site was considered the most suitable location for a modern wastewater treatment facility due to:

  • the availability of flood-free land
  • its low impact on the community and environment compared with other proposed sites
  • its proximity to the Logan river.

The project is currently in the early planning phase. 

Community consultation

In early 2020 we will call for nominations from members wanting to join a Community Reference Group. The group will inform the future development of the Logan South WWTP B.

To register your interest, please email watercomms@logan.qld.gov.au.
