New water station opens

Posted: 10am 18 Feb 2021

Unitywater has a new community water fill station in Highvale, for residents who rely on tanks or water carriers to top up supplies when rainfall is low.

The new station, opened on Showgrounds Dr, Highvale, follows the rollout of stations in Warner, Nambour and Cooroy last year.

Unitywater Executive Manager Customer and Community Katherine Gee said the stations serve a critical role for residents who are not connected to town water.

Water on tap

“We understand residents who rely solely on water tanks during dry times can experience delays when needing to top up and we want to make sure they can access water when they need it most,” Ms Gee said.

“From September to October last year when we experienced dry conditions, refills at our nearby Warner station increased by more than 320 percent, highlighting just how important these facilities are within communities not connected to town water supply.

“With combined dam levels across South East Queensland still sitting under 60 percent, we’re reminding people to watch their water usage and target 150 litres per person per day.” Ms Gee said the price for water is in line with residential and water carrier pricing, charged at $4.46 for 1000 litres.

Easy access

“The stations are easy to access and operate. All users need is their own water cube or container, with a hose and hose connection for water quality and safety purposes,” she said.

Payments can be made by credit or debit card, or contact-free via PayWave.
