Water and sewerage development

Water and sewerage overview

Our water development services (WDS) program assesses the water and sewerage aspects of development applications. WDS gives technical advice and prepares infrastructure agreements with land developers about water and sewerage.

The information on this page may help you with water and sewerage development in Logan. For more help you can access our water connection advice service or contact our team.

As-constructed drawings

Water and sewerage as-constructed drawings can be accessed using the following online tools:

  • Logan City as-constructed plans – search for a property to find water and sewer, house drainage, stormwater and roadworks plans. Noted that the level of information available varies, depending on the property.
  • PD Online – to see documents associated with development applications.

If you cannot find as-constructed plans for a property using our online services email council@logan.qld.gov.au. We will investigate and let you know if records are available (please allow 5–10 working days). An onsite search at the developer’s expense may be needed to locate existing services if we do not have the information.

Building over or near relevant infrastructure (BOONRI)

If you want to build a structure close to existing water or sewerage (wastewater) infrastructure you may need approval.

A private building certifier will assess your proposed building works to make sure the works do not damage or block access to infrastructure. They will assess this against the Queensland development code and tell you if you need an approval from us.

You can find out more in our building over or near sewerage infrastructure fact sheet (PDF 73 KB) and building over or near sewerage infrastructure checklist (PDF 115K).

You can find the Queensland development code - building over or near relevant infrastructure (PDF 137 KB) on the Department of Housing and Public Works website.

Capital works program

For summary of the approved capital works items relevant to land developments for the 2018–2019 financial year see the Capital works program approved items 2018–2019  (PDF 31 KB).

Design and construction standards

Information about the water and sewerage design and construction standards for Logan is available in the SEQ Design and Construction Code.

Design variation requests

If you want to vary from the design and construction standards for water and sewerage infrastructure works we may ask you to complete a design variation request form(PDF 30 KB).

To discuss design requirements and proposed variations contact our team.

SEQ gravity sewerage code changes – July 2019

On 1 July 2019 a new version of the SEQ gravity sewerage code took effect.

Development applications lodged after this date will be assessed against the new code. Applications lodged before 1 July 2019 may also meet the new code if an agreement has been made.

You can access those parts of the SEQ code that are wholly written by the SEQ code group (for example, design criteria and asset information specification) in the SEQ Design and Construction Code.

Access to those parts of the SEQ code that are based on Water Services Association of Australia codes will be migrated to the WSAA.

More information about these changes is available in the SEQ Design and Construction Code.
