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

The river stopped running in September 2019 due to lack of rainfall and the wells underground are not replenishing enough to keep up with the current demand in this community. 

Water consumption in Dayboro is higher than this time last year and higher than other areas across South East Queensland. We need the community to work together to limit all non-essential indoor and outdoor water use and help avoid water restrictions.


There are currently no formal restrictions in place, however we need everyone to save water and reduce their water consumption to avoid restrictions being implemented.

If current water consumption is not reduced, restrictions may be implemented. Unitywater and Seqwater are closely monitoring the water supply.

Please limit watering where possible and if you need to water your garden, consider more efficient ways to do this. For example, put a bucket in your shower while the water heats up and use this on your garden and ensure your watering is during cooler parts of the day to minimise evaporation.

No. Unitywater and Seqwater are working together to ensure a continuous and reliable water supply for the community but we need your help to save water and avoid restrictions.

Please limit all non-essential water use until further notice. Unitywater and Seqwater will continue to monitor the water supply and will inform the community when it returns to normal.

Unitywater and Seqwater will continue to monitor the water supply and if the wells are replenishing we will advise the community if normal water habits can resume.

There are no formal water restrictions in place but we’re encouraging everyone to limit non-essential water use where possible.
