Water network update

Council is aware of some instances of water discolouration occurring across the region.

The extended rain period has made the river water dirtier and more difficult to treat.

Council has had to supplement the supply with bore water from the Nebo Road Water Treatment Plant.

The bore water has a higher iron concentration than the river water and customers may be noticing a slight brown or cloudy discolouration in their water supply.

Despite the discolouration, the water continues to meet the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines and is safe for human consumption.

Council conducts regular water quality testing and any results that don’t meet the guideline values are reported to Queensland Health.
