  • Reduce your dependence on local water supply. Proving you with a source of fresh water when water restrictions are in place.
  • Reduce your water bills. With the right system you can harvest most of the water you need from free rainwater.
  • Help the Environment. Rainwater harvesting is sustainable and eases the burden on infrastructure such as dams, treatment facilities and pipework.

What sized tank do you need?

The key consideration when choosing what size tank you need is to estimate the volume of water you require.

For example, Using Toowoomba rainfall records, a 10,000 litre rainwater tank internally connected to the toilet and washing machine could be expected to generally supply 20-30% of the average daily water needs for a typical household. Using a 22,000 litre tank would increase this figure to 30-40%.

Water Tanks Toowoomba FAQs

What are the requirements for Water Tanks in Toowoomba?

Since September 1, 2014, rainwater tanks and water-saving measures are mandatory for new dwellings and commercial buildings in Queensland.

For new single detached dwellings on blocks over 250m², Queensland Development Code (QDC) 4.2 applies, while QDC 4.3 applies to new commercial buildings (class 5 to 9), excluding units. Units are defined as attached dwellings separated by fire-resisting walls.

Requirements for new houses include collecting water from at least 50% of the roof area or 100m² (whichever is lesser), plumbing for toilets, washing machines, and one outdoor tap, and minimum tank capacities based on site size or rural zoning.

For class 5-9 buildings, water collection, plumbing, and minimum tank capacities are specified based on pedestal requirements.

Approval for rainwater tanks is issued as part of overall plumbing approval. It’s crucial to check the location of Council infrastructure on the allotment, as it may affect tank placement.

Overflow from tanks must be discharged without causing nuisance or erosion, typically via a bubbler or into a Council-approved stormwater system.

Marking and signage requirements include labeling water supply systems with “RAINWATER” at intervals not exceeding 500mm, using green indicators for rainwater outlets, and following AS 1345 and AS 3500 guidelines for tank signage.

Greenmount Waste Management Facility Upgrade

Toowoomba Council are building a waste transfer facility in Greenmount to replace the nearing-capacity landfill. These facilities offer a cleaner waste management alternative, enhancing the public experience, reducing community impact, and ensuring environmental compliance.

Waste is stored in bulk bins before offsite transport, minimising odour, dust, and wildlife issues. Litter prevention measures prevent windblown debris. The design mirrors the Greater Toowoomba Waste Management Facility, aiming to maximize landfill diversion. Construction will take place on the current site.
