Water restrictions

Dam with low water. Dry, cracked banks and dying tree stump.

Water restrictions are not currently in place in Logan.  Heavy rainfall during February and March 2022 replenished the SEQ dams.  Water restrictions are not anticipated to be introduced in the near future.  

Logan City Council’s Logan Water will introduce water restrictions when dam levels fall to 50% capacity.  Residents will then be asked to target 142 litres per person per day.  

Current dam levels are 87.8% with residents of Logan using 142 litres per person per day.  Information on restrictions will increase should dam levels fall closer to 50%.

If you are interested to know what we do in preparation for water restrictions, or why they may be necessary in the future, visit our  Preparing for water restrictions frequently asked questions page. You can download our Water restrictions schedule (PDF 1.1 MB) for more information about what water restrictions mean.

You can find more information on what measures will be put in place should water restrictions be introduced on our During water restrictions frequently asked questions page.

Water restrictions focus on the reduction of outdoor water use.  This is where you can reduce your bills with the greatest effect and low effort, even when we are not in restrictions.  Watering outside of the hottest parts of the day, or putting a bucket in the shower and using that to water your garden, are easy ways to reduce your water use.
