Dayboro is not connected to the SEQ Water Grid and relies on its own water supply from bores in the North Pine River.

Unitywater Executive Manager Customer and Community Katherine Gee said the river had stopped flowing due to the lack of rainfall and asked the community to consider their water use with further dry weather forecast.

“It’s getting warmer and generally water consumption increases for activities such as watering gardens,” Ms Gee said.

“We are working with Seqwater to maintain the water supply to Dayboro but everyone can make small changes around their properties to help make a difference.

“You can limit your showers to four minutes, water the garden in the early morning or late afternoon and of course only use appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines when they are full.”
