Water restrictions

Water restrictions are currently not in place. Medium level drought water restrictions will be considered when the combined level of SEQ Water Grid dams reach 50%.

Water restrictions impact people's lives and the economy and are implemented only when absolutely necessary. Our drought response plan balances water security and impacts on the community. It is more effective to use our climate-resilient assets (such as the Gold Coast Desalination Plant) rather than impose restrictions before the combined level of our Water Grid dams reaches 50%.

We also encourage people to be water wise all the time, outside of any formal water restrictions.
