The new water treatment plant will be capable of producing up to 30 million litres of drinking water per day, compared to the existing Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant which produces up to 4 million litres per day. Water will be released from Wyaralong Dam to flow down Teviot Brook and the Logan River to the Cedar Grove Weir. This is similar to the way Wivenhoe Dam releases water into the Brisbane River to be treated at the Mt Crosby Water Treatment Plants.

The Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant is still in the early stages of planning. It is being designed specifically to treat water from Wyaralong Dam and the Logan River, including any water quality impacts from recreational activity. It will incorporate cutting edge technology in water treatment processes and sustainable design. The plant will supply Beaudesert and the growing communities of southern Logan, including Flagstone and Yarrabilba.
