Water Restrictions lifted
Southeast Queenslanders have been given carte blanche to go wet and wild, with
an official end to all water restrictions from today.
A Seqwater spokeswoman said the last remaining low-level water restrictions
Permanent Water Conservation Measures no longer applied.
Responsibility for all bulk water supply and security has now been transferred
to Seqwater, which has merged with LinkWater and the SEQ Water Grid Manager in a
move the Newman government said was in line with its election commitment to ease
The previous complex and costly bulk water supply arrangements have been
simplified to avoid duplication, cut operating and administration costs and
reduce board and executive expenses, Mr Cripps said.
The Seqwater spokesperson said while water shouldn't be wasted, formal
restrictions were no longer needed to get households to observe water wise
behaviour such as:
- use rainwater where possible outdoors
- avoid watering in the heat of the day between 10am and 4pm
- top up swimming pools with rainwater and use a pool cover
- when cleaning outside, use a high pressure cleaning device or hose with a twist
or trigger nozzle.
