Kingaroy water will be sourced from Gordonbrook Dam

DUE to an issue with the supply of water from the Boondooma pipeline to the Kingaroy Water Treatment Plant, Kingaroy's water supply will be sourced from Gordonbrook Dam for the next few days.

South Burnett Regional Council water and waste water manager Nerida Airs said the process was expected to begin on Saturday, November 21 and continue to at least Tuesday, November 24.

"The quality of water will not be affected but sometimes residents may notice a difference in the taste and smell when the water comes from Gordonbrook Dam rather than Boondooma," Ms Airs said.

Damage which occurred at the Kingaroy Water Treatment Plant during a lightning strike when a storm cell moved through the region last weekend has been repaired and the plant is back to normal operation.

Ms Airs said despite recent rain, level 2 restrictions still applied across the region.

This means residents are still being asked to be water wise.

Simple steps to save water include:

  • Turning off the tap when brushing teeth, applying shaving cream, or soaping up
  • Only washing clothes or running dishwashers when you have a full load
  • Sweeping paved areas instead of hosing them
  • Fixing dripping taps
  • For more details, contact a council customer service centre on 4189 9100.
