Topic: Drought and water supply plans and conservation

Guest Speaker: SEQ Water

We are in a time of drought – AGAIN – and we need to revisit how SE Queensland’s limited water supply is going to continue “supplying”.

Do you think we need to re-introduce legislation that all new housing developments should be required to have tanks to capture rain when it falls on roofs??

Can we continue with Bribie Island residents using bores into our freshwater aquifers to maintain our gardens? With continued population growth on Bribie Island, is this sustainable?

Attached is the Poster for this month’s’ meeting.

Somehow we forget this incredibly important and progressive scientific research facility is actually on Bribie Island
