The provision of reticulated water is a direct responsibility of Council with the prime objective being the provision of safe and reliable supplies at an acceptable cost to the community. Council also promotes a water conservation attitude within the community at large. Council maintains two different systems; normal pressurised and constant flow.
For consumers within the Gladstone Regional Council local government area there are currently no water restrictions. Council would only impose restrictions when circumstances change, and restrictions are required.
The Drinking Water Quality Management Plan Report documents Council's water service performance based on water quality and the implementation of actions detailed in the Queensland Government's Drinking Water Quality Management Plan (DWQMP) as required under the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008.
The report pertains to water provided by Gladstone Regional Council through four water schemes - Lake Awoonga Scheme, Bororen Scheme, Miriam Vale Scheme, and the Agnes Water/Seventeen Seventy Scheme.
The Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy and the Gladstone Regional Council have partnered to establish a shared understanding of the capability of Awoonga Dam, Gladstone's bulk water supply, to meet existing and future water demand.
The Regional Water Supply Security Assessment describes Council's Gladstone reticulation network bulk water supply system and existing and future water use and summarises the likelihood of potential water supply restrictions and shortfalls now and into the future.
In order to comply with the requirements of section s575A of the Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008, Council must publish its Water Services Performance Report on its website.
