Dwindling dam levels prompts drought response plan

Combined levels of our water grid dams dropped to about 60 percent forcing SEQ Water to enact the South Easts Drought Response Plan.
Under the plan, SEQ Water has increased production at the Gold Coast desalination plant up to 100 percent.
Michelle Cull from Urban Utilities has encouraged everyone in Ipswich to be water wise.
"At the moment water usage in south east Queensland has been sitting at around 170 litres per person per day and we would like to see that come down to an individual usage of 150 litres per day", she said.
