Water update – Mount Cotton

UPDATE at 1.45PM: Further to our update below, the routine maintenance that caused the water outage at Mt Cotton was undertaken by SEQWater without prior notification to Redland City Council. Our Redland Water crews have been on site since early this morning working on restoring the water supply.

Due to routine maintenance being undertaken residents in the Mount Cotton area may experience dirty water issues for the remainder of today.

Please check the cleanliness of the water before operating washing machines or filling kettles.

If your water is discoloured run a cold water tap until it clears – this may take a few minutes.

Run each tap for a short time to remove any trapped air.
