BUSHFIRE UPDATES: Refer to the QFES Facebook or Twitter for up to date alerts and information. Outages and other emergency information (such as evacuation centres) will also be published on our disaster dashboard when required.
WATER CONSERVATION: Water operations at Cressbrook Dam are back online following days of emergency works from Ergon Energy and our staff. However, while systems come back up to full operational speed we're urging everyone on the Toowoomba Bulk Water Supply to continue conserving water. Read more here.
DONATIONS: Donations towards townships affected by the fires can be made via Givit.
Under our houses, shops and factories there are a set of pipes separate to the ones that bring us water. These pipes are fed from drains connected to the bathroom, kitchen, laundry e.t.c. Everything that goes down these drains heads toward the water reclamation facility where the wastewater is cleaned and treated.
It's important to remember drains aren't bins. Putting the wrong thing down the sink or toilet can cause blocked drains and/or a breakdown in the wastewater system. Read about how to mind your wastewater here.
