Greater Brisbane residents asked to conserve water

All Brisbane residents, as well as those in Logan, Ipswich, Moreton Bay and the Lockyer Valley are being urged to conserve water.

This extreme weather and heavy rain has impacted the Mt Crosby and North Pine Water Treatment Plants which both went offline in the early hours of this morning. 
This is as a result of extreme rainfall and flooding washing soil and debris into the creeks and waterways, which flow into the treatment plants.  
The cloudiness in the water has increased by up to 100 times the normal amount. 
Seqwater crews have been working hard to get the treatment plants back online since early this morning and have been able to return North Pine. Mount Crosby is still offline.
The Gold Coast Desalination Plant is being used to help supplement supplies, while we work around the clock. 
Any savings on water use over the next couple of days will greatly assist in managing water supply through this natural disaster.
Seqwater is working closely with its water supply partners, Urban Utilities, Unitywater and Logan City Council to keep people updated.

Any questions?
