Town supply nearly empty
THE water situation has reached critical levels in Gayndah, Eidsvold and Mundubbera.
North Burnett Regional Council has requested residents stop using water except for essential purposes as storage tanks are nearly empty.
Residents are advised to boil town water three times before drinking.
The water pump in Gayndah that was repaired and operational this year after the 2010/11 floods has been destroyed, with a makeshift system put in place.
Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney said getting a consistent water supply into Gayndah was a priority.
