A CLINK between two glasses was heard to toast the opening of a new multi-million dollar water reservoir at New Bieth.

The celebratory drink was shared at the site of the $14.2 million reservoir by Allconnex Water CEO Andrew Foley and Logan City councillor Luke Smith on Wednesday, March 28.

Mr Foley said the 20 mega litre water storage unit was a vital piece of infrastructure that would secure the future water supply in south-west Logan.

"At over 10 metres high and 50 metres in diameter you can get an idea of the scale of infrastructure we provide and the size structure we need to build to store 20 mega litres of water," Mr Foley said.

"Water is ready to flow for the next generation of residents."

According to the State Government's South East Queensland Regional Plan 2031, about 70,000 additional homes will be built to accommodate Logan's expected growth.

Governance, finance and economic development committee chairperson, Cr Luke Smith said the planning for the project began five years ago.

"It is exciting to see what we thought of in 2007 actually in reality," Cr Smith said.

"It is important infrastructure is delivered in a planned and structured way to support the future needs of the local community.

"We can't build new communities without access to a reliable supply of drinking water."

The New Bieth reservoir is connected to the water supply network via trunk water mains which will also link the New Bieth and Flagstone areas.
