Toowoomba bulk water supply

Drinking water for Toowoomba and the surrounding towns of Oakey, Jondaryan, Haden, Crows Nest, Highfields, Kingsthorpe, Gowrie Junction, Meringandan, Westbrook and Goombungee is currently supplied by three local dams, Cooby, Perseverance and Cressbrook, a growing number of bores and the Wivenhoe Dam pipeline.

The pipeline from Wivenhoe Dam (SEQWater) provides security of supply when the rainfall in our dam catchments is insufficient to maintain supply to meet the region's growing needs. Check current dam levels and the related documents for consumption and rainfall details.

Bores have been drilled into the Great Artesian Basin and the water transferred as required into Cooby Dam to supplement supplies when needed.
