Water supply to the Scenic Rim area will continue to meet local demand over the weekend, with tankering to supplement areas where water treatment plants are offline.
There is currently no impact on drinking water quality in the area.
As a result of significant local flooding across the Scenic Rim, Seqwater’s water treatment plants at Kooralbyn, Beaudesert, Rathdowney and Canungra are offline.
However, there is sufficient water supply in storage for coming days at Seqwater’s reservoirs and Queensland Urban Utilities’ reservoirs.
Tankering will supplement this supply where needed and when access to the Kooralbyn and Rathdowney plants and reservoirs is restored.
Tankering to the Canungra's Appel Street reservoir has already commenced and will continue until 11pm tonight to boost storage levels.
Residents are also encouraged to limit their use of drinking water for cleaning to help conserve supply until local conditions improve.
Dayboro and Kenilworth Water Treatment Plants are currently offline and tankering will also take place in those areas to maintian water supply storage levels over the weekend.
