Canungra creek

Seqwater’s Canungra Water Treatment Plant in Queensland has returned to normal operations following recent rainfall.

Now that the Canungra Creek is flowing again, there is no longer a requirement for tankering water to the town.

Queensland Urban Utilities spokesperson, Michelle Cull, said although the water treatment plant is back online it was still important for everyone to continue to be water wise.

“As Canungra is not connected to the SEQ Water Grid and relies on a local water source, water restrictions will remain in place to preserve water storage levels,” Ms Cull said.

“Water usage in Canungra is now around 100L per person per day and we’d like to say a big thank you to the community for its efforts.”

Seqwater encourages everyone to continue to be vigilant in saving water.

Queensland Urban Utilities will carry out water testing at its Canungra tanker filling station on 29 January in preparation for its reopening as soon as possible.

Once the permanent tanker filling station is reopened, the temporary filling point in Coburg Street will be closed.

A Seqwater spokesperson said customers may notice a slight change in the water taste, however assured residents the water meets stringent Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Seqwater will continue to monitor the flows in Canungra Creek and the community will be kept informed of any updates.

Water restrictions will also remain in place in other towns in the Scenic Rim that are not connected to the SEQ Water Grid, including Beaudesert, Boonah, Kalbar, Mt Alford, Aratula, Rathdowney and Kooralbyn.
