Beaudesert Water Supply Upgrade


We're connecting Beaudesert to the SEQ Water Grid and building a new water treatment plant to supply the growing Scenic Rim and South Logan regions.

We also considered additional upgrades to the Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant to produce more water. This would only allow us to meet peak demand up until around 2030, when we would no longer be able to draw enough water from the Logan River to supply Beaudesert.

The Beaudesert Water Supply Upgrade will provide a long-term water supply solution for the Scenic Rim, supporting continued population and economic growth.

On this page you can find out more about the three stages of the upgrade, provide your feedback or ask us questions.

    Do you remember times Beaudesert and the Scenic Rim had too much or not enough water? How does a reliable water supply affect your home, business or community? What does the future of the Scenic Rim look like to you, and how does water fit into that picture?

    Upgrades to the Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant on Helen St will add over 5 million litres of storage for treated drinking water. The Beaudesert plant will be decommissioned when the Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant is operational, but the new storage reservoirs will still be used.

    The South West Pipeline is 27km of mostly underground bulk water pipes that will connect Beaudesert to the SEQ Water Grid and the future Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant.

    The new Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant will be built adjacent to the Cedar Grove Weir and draw water from Wyaralong Dam. It will initially produce 30 million litres per day, with future upgrades planned for up to 120 million litres per day.

    Wyaralong Dam was completed in 2010 as part of the Queensland Government's response to the Millennium Drought. It was always intended as a new drinking water supply, but construction of the Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant was defered when the drought broke. Since then, it has become a popular recreation site.
