Drinking Water Service Annual Report

We supply drinking water under a Drinking Water Quality Management Plan (DWQMP). The Plan is approved by the Queensland Water Supply Regulator to meet the requirements of the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008. This approval is required before we can supply safe drinking water to the community.

The DWQMP applies to all Logan City Council water distribution networks, from the receiving point of bulk treated water (from Seqwater) to customers’ water meters. The Plan makes sure that customers receive safe consistent and reliable drinking water to their taps.

The DWQMP ensures that we meet our responsibilities under the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008 and Public Health Regulation 2018.

Our Drinking Water Service Annual Report, formerly known as the Drinking Water Quality Management Plan Annual Report, shows how we manage the quality of our drinking water. It also explains how we have been working to carry out the actions detailed in our DWQMP.
