History of water reform in Logan

Year Reform
1979 Logan City Council formed. The first budget allocated almost $5 million to water and sewage.
From 1979 Logan City Council developed water and sewerage infrastructure across the city. This included seven stages of the Loganholme Water Pollution Control Centre.
1998 Logan City Enterprises (including Logan Water) established under National Competition Policy reform.
2000s

South East Queensland experienced severe drought conditions. The state government introduced drought-proofing projects, including a new dam, water desalination plant and major pipelines.

2007 The state government announced south east Queensland water reform, which separated water and sewerage assets and services into new entities. Some were owned by the state government and some by councils.
2008 State government set a bulk (wholesale) water price path for next 10 years. They outlined an increase in costs that councils would need to absorb when selling water to customers.
2010 Allconnex Water began operations in Logan, Redland and Gold Coast, under state government legislation.
April 2011 In response to much political unrest in the Gold Coast, Premier Anna Bligh announced that councils could choose to take control of their water supply.
July 2011 Gold Coast City Council left Allconnex Water.
August 2011 Redland City Council left Allconnex Water. Logan City Council took control of water and sewage in Logan, with costs paid by Gold Coast City Council.
March 2012 Council adopted the structure for the Logan Water branch.
June 2012 Allconnex Water disestablished.
July 2012 Logan Water business re-established within Council’s Road and Water Infrastructure Stream

Drinking Water Quality Management Plan

We supply drinking water under a Drinking Water Quality Management Plan (DWQMP). This plan is approved by the water supply regulator to meet the requirements of the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008. This approval is our licence to 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 makes sure that we meet our responsibilities under the Public Health Regulation 2005.
