SOUTH Burnett Regional Council has asked residents to limit water usage following a lightning strike at Kingaroy Water Treatment Plant.
Key components of the plant are being manually operated following a storm on Saturday night.
A council spokeswoman said residents can help reduce water demand by limiting non-essential water use.
The council hopes repairs will be completed by the end of the week, depending on the availability of spare parts.
