Residents asked to conserve water as weather event impacts treatment plants

All residents of Brisbane, Logan, Moreton Bay and surrounding areas are urged to conserve water with extreme weather and heavy rain affecting Mt Crosby and North Pine water treatment plants.

The Mt Crosby treatment plant was taken offline in the early hours of Sunday morning as plants were affected by high levels of turbidity and sediment, which resulted from extreme rainfall in the Wivenhoe catchment, washing soil and debris in streams and waterways.

Raw water at the Mount Crosby water intake increased regular turbidity levels by up to 100 times the normal amount.

Seqwater teams are working around the clock to monitor the situation closely and resolve the issue as quickly as possible. The SEQ water network and Gold Coast desalination plant are being used to help supplement supply, while major treatment plants are offline.

Drinking water is constantly monitored and continues to meet the strict sanitary requirements of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Logan Water is working closely with Seqwater until the situation is resolved.

This is only a precaution. Any savings on water use over the next few days will go a long way in managing water supplies during this extreme weather event.

Residents can find more information on the Seqwater website.

If residents need to report problems with their water supply, please call (07) 3412 3412.
