Irrigation

Gatton Star - - YOUR SAY -

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.
