NEED

The projected bulk water demand from the Beaudesert Township is expected to exceed capacity by approximately 2022 and increase significantly thereafter due to significant growth in the area, particularly within the Bromelton State Development Area. There is also significant growth predicted in the adjacent Logan City Council area of South Logan (including Yarrabilba, Travis Road, Woodhill and Flagstone).

Water supply to the Beaudesert Township is currently provided by the Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant. The Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant is a stand-alone water supply that extracts raw water from the Logan River. It is not connected to the South East Queensland Water Grid. The Water Treatment Plant was refurbished in 2014 to increase its water treatment capacity to four megalitres per day.

PROPOSAL

The objectives of the proposal are to meet the future demand for the Beaudesert Township and provide water supply security to growth areas in the Logan City Council area.

The proposal is to augment the bulk water supply by either construction of a pipeline connecting Beaudesert to the Water Grid via growth areas in Logan City Council or construct a new Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant. If either option proceeds, the existing Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant will be decommissioned.
