Following recent rainfall, Seqwater has brought its Canungra Water Treatment Plant back online.

As Canungra Creek is flowing again, the treatment plant has returned to normal operations and there is no longer a requirement for tankering water to the town.

Urban Utilities spokesperson, Michelle Cull, said although the water treatment plant is back online it was still important for everyone to continue to be water wise.

“As Canungra is not connected to the SEQ Water Grid and relies on a local water source, water restrictions will remain in place to preserve water storage levels,” she said.

“We encourage everyone to continue to be vigilant in saving water.

“Water usage in Canungra is now around 100 litres per person per day and we’d like to say a big thank you to the community for its efforts.”

Urban Utilities has reopened its Canungra tanker filling station. The temporary filling point in Coburg St will be closed as of tomorrow (January 30, 2020).

A Seqwater spokesperson said customers may notice a slight change in the water taste, however assured residents the water meets stringent Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.

Seqwater will continue to monitor the flows in Canungra Creek and the community will be kept informed of any updates.

Water restrictions will also remain in place in other towns in the Scenic Rim that are not connected to the SEQ Water Grid including Beaudesert, Boonah, Kalbar, Mt Alford, Aratula, Rathdowney and Kooralbyn.
