Level of Service Objectives for South East Queensland

  • Overview

The Department of Energy and Water Supply (DEWS) conducted a review of the level of service (LOS) objectives for South East Queensland.

The review of the LOS objectives sought to:

  • determine whether 375 litres per person per day was still an appropriate water allowance for water planning purposes
  • reduce red tape by minimising reporting requirements for Seqwater
  • promote cost-effective operation of bulk water supplies by providing flexibility to optimise existing assets and prevent over-capitalisation of existing and future infrastructure
  • facilitate an adaptive management approach of the SEQ bulk water supply system.

Public consultation occurred through a public discussion paper and a Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement.  The consultation period has now closed and a Decision Regulatory Impact Statement has been released. More information about the review process can be found on the DNRME website.
