As a result of new legislation introduced by the Queensland Government, the Queensland Water Commission and its Permanent Water Conservation Measures were abolished on 1 January 2013. 

At present, average daily residential water consumption across South East Queensland is still well below consumption trends prior to the drought that we experienced a few years ago.

To protect our water supply, and reduce unnecessary increases in your bill, Queensland Urban Utilities encourages residents and businesses to practice water efficient behaviours

Although there are currently no restrictions in place, water is still a precious resource.  For full details of how and when you can use water, refer to our permanent water use rules.
