Water main break on Warwick-Allora line

Although there is currently sufficient water supply for three days, council is reviewing alternative water supplies should the break require extensive repairs.

Southern Downs Regional Council is aware of a water main break on the Warwick-Allora line and is currently investigating the cause.

The break will potentially impact the supply of potable water to the Allora region and local residents are asked to be mindful of water usage over the weekend and until more is known.

Council’s Director Infrastructure Services Gary Murphy said council crews were immediately on-site to attend to the issue.

“Crews are working hard to identify the issue and remedy the situation,” Mr Murphy said.

“While water consumption is relatively low at the moment and there is sufficient water in the Allora reservoir for a couple of days, there is no immediate concern.

“There is sufficient supply for three days in the system and council is reviewing alternative water supplies for the Allora region should the break require extensive repairs.

“We do however appreciate the local community minimising water usage as crews work to fix the issue under difficult circumstances.”

Council has been in contact with Toowoomba Regional Council who has agreed to support the transport of potable water to Allora should access to the Warwick supply be delayed.

However, the need may not arise.

Council thanks the community for its patience and cooperation.

Residents can contact Council on 1300 697 372 if they have questions or concerns.

Further updates will be provided as more information becomes available.
