We are planning for this increase in population and the effects of climate change through our Water Security Program.
New water sources will inevitably be needed in the future and no single option, such as a new dam, desalination plant, rainwater tank or stormwater harvesting scheme, on their own, is likely to meet the region’s needs. We will need a combination of options.
Each option and combination of options has advantages and disadvantages that we need to consider and make trade-offs to make the right choices for South East Queensland. Check out the video page for short videos on water source options. Understanding what each option involves means you can help us make decisions for South East Queensland's water future.
