Standpipes back in action

Posted: 2pm 27 Jan 2021

Unitywater has reopened standpipes in Dayboro after recent rain across the region.

Dayboro, which is not on the SEQ Water Grid, was urged on to limit non-essential water use in November as dry weather caused bore levels to drop significantly.

“We asked everyone to be water conscious to ensure we can all have access to our most precious resource when we need it,” says Unitywater Executive Manager Customer and Community Katherine Gee.


Right direction

“We thank those who listened and acted. Standpipes were reopened for all carriers and residents.

“While this move is a step in the right direction, we all must keep up our best efforts to help avoid water restrictions in the future.”

Ms Gee says the potable water fill station, on Mount Mee Rd in Dayboro, has also reopened to water carriers.

Daily target

“Despite recent rain, underground bores can dry up quite rapidly, so we’ll continue to monitor consumption and encourage the community to target 150 litres per person per day,” she says.

“Everyone has a part to play and making little changes can go a long way to preserving water. 

“Limit your showers to four minutes and only use appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines when they are full.”

Dam levels

The combined level of SEQ Water’s Grid of drinking water supply dams is today (January 27) at 57.5 per cent of capacity – down 0.3 per cent in the last seven days.

North Pine Dam, which supplies much of the Moreton Bay Region, is at 48.9 per cent of drinking water capacity, while the much smaller Lake Kurwongbah is at 90.8 per cent.
