Mayor Antonio to discuss water security with Prime Minister

Toowoomba Region Mayor Paul Antonio today will discuss the region’s future water security options with Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack in Canberra.

Mayor Antonio and Toowoomba Regional Council CEO Brian Pidgeon will outline the region’s water saving initiatives and discuss a range of options around future water sources for southern Queensland and northern New south Wales.

“In addition to highlighting our household water-saving initiatives and the tightening of residential water restrictions, Council can show how we are investigating the integrity of our extensive water supply network,” Mayor Antonio said.

“There is greater scope to start using manufactured and treated water for industrial, commercial and some household uses, (for garden watering and in toilets) and save our precious drinking water supplies for human consumption.
