Queensland Urban Utilities says that they are well prepared for the severe weather conditions expected this summer due to their ongoing investment and maintenance program.
Queensland Urban Utilities CEO, Louise Dudley, said the company has been working hard to be prepared for all possibilities for the summer season.
“Our teams have built new water and sewerage infrastructure this year, but they also have ensured the existing network is well maintained and operating effectively,” she said.
“We will continue our extensive water testing program and conduct more than 15,000 water quality tests each and every month.
“Our water reservoir levels have been increased to provide more emergency storage in case of power interruptions, water quality issues and damage to our infrastructure, and we have deployed generators to pumping stations and water boosters in case of power interruptions.
“Our critical customers have also been identified and contingency and emergency plans are in place to manage interruptions of supply and our staff are well trained and ready to respond at a moment’s notice.”
