What is important to consider when selecting a new location for a wastewater (sewage) treatment facility?

This facility is needed to service the development corridor which extends from Park Ridge to Yarrabilba. As development progresses and the population increases in this corridor, additional critical infrastructure such as wastewater treatment facilities and trunk pipelines is required.

Approximately 10 hectares of land is required to build the facility, with an additional 550m surrounding this for a buffer between the facility and developed areas. The site needs to:

  • be near the development areas it will service
  • have a sufficient flood free area for key structures
  • be near a place where highly treated water from the facility can be released such as a waterway, irrigation area or a business area where the water can be used.

There is also the opportunity to incorporate community amenities as part of this development, such as walking trails or recreational areas.

Council is co-funding this project with the Queensland Government and coordinating it in consultation with regulatory authorities and community members. Council’s Logan Water Infrastructure Alliance will undertake all planning and design activities.

We encourage you to provide your insights and suggestions on what Council needs to consider when finding a location for this wastewater treatment facility. View the project information, then add your comments to the map and complete a survey.
