Water for emergency use only

RESIDENTS and businesses within the Cairns region should only use water for emergency purposes.

Council’s treatment plants are offline due to the ongoing flooding across the region.

Water supply stored in the reservoirs is reaching a critical level and residents are being urged to use water for emergency use only.

Water from the reservoirs is safe to drink and does not need to be boiled.

The notice to conserve water is likely to remain in place until further advised.

Council will advise when this notice has been lifted.
