Seqwater is carrying out a $1.5 million upgrade on two important water pipes which supply water from the Mount Crosby Water Treatment Plants to Brisbane and Ipswich. As part of this, Seqwater replaced four valves on two pipes that supply water to Brisbane and Ipswich.
The works that occurred from Saturday 31 July to Sunday 1 August are completed.
Seqwater is the bulk water supplier in South East Queensland, and Urban Utilities is responsible for delivering this treated water to your homes and businesses.
While these works were underway, some properties in Brisbane may have experienced low or fluctuating water pressure or temporary discolouration of their water.
Customers in impacted areas will have received notification in their letterbox.
Trial works (complete)
Trial works occurred from Thursday, 3 June - Sunday, 6 June and have now been completed. The pipes were taken offline temporarily to carry out network checks to help plan the works.
Valve replacement works (complete)
Saturday 17 July – Monday 19 July
These works involved replacing some of the valves. To do this, the two water pipes needed to be taken offline temporarily during the weekend of Saturday 17 July - Monday 19 July.
Works also continued throughout last week, however there was no impact to water supply.
Saturday 31 July - Sunday 1 August
Seqwater carried out further work on the valves, which required the two pipes to be taken offline temporarily from Saturday 31 July to Sunday 1 August.
Customers may have temporarily experienced:
- reduced or low water pressure,
- potentially some discolouration of the water.
The water remained safe to drink.
