THE Palaszczuk Government understands the genuine hardship being encountered by Queenslanders due to the impact of the current drought.
The government already subsidises prices payable by Lower Lockyer Valley and Morton Vale pipeline customers, as well as those payable by some 6000 other irrigation customers across Queensland.
Some costs, though, must be recovered to ensure that infrastructure is maintained to ensure capacity and operation can continue when the weather conditions turn and water can be stored and delivered to irrigation customers.
Customers of Seqwater who are experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to phone Seqwater’s credit services staff on 1800 077 005 to discuss their individual needs and options available to help through this period.
The government expects Seqwater to do its best to assist all customers who are impacted by drought conditions.
