Private works

If you want to make connections or alterations to the water or wastewater network, an application needs to be lodged. You can apply for Logan City Council delivered works or developer delivered works.

Logan City Council delivered works

If the applicant wants Council to undertake the works, an application needs to be lodged.

You will need to supply a copy of the council-stamped, approved engineering plan for the proposed works. The plan should include a construction procedure sequencing, clearly showing the connection in detail (e.g. design detail, longitudinal section for alteration to existing infrastructure etc.)

For minor works where a Council-approved plan is not needed, please provide a drawing to show what work needs to be done.

Once we have reviewed your application, we will send you an email with an application number for your reference. We will give you a quotation within 3–4 weeks, providing all the information has been received.

Your information can be emailed to us at privateworksapplications@logan.qld.gov.au
