From time to time, we need to upgrade our network of dams, plants, pipelines and associated infrastructure to maintain a reliable water supply for SEQ.

Recreation and safety notices

When there is a potential public health or safety risk, we may temporarily close lakes or parks until it is safe to re-open for public access.
