Drinking Water Quality Management Plan
All registered service providers supplying drinking water in Queensland are required to have an approved Drinking Water Quality Management Plan (DWQMP). The DWQMP is a regulated risk mitigation measure to ensure the safety of customers who use drinking water. As a service provider, Southern Downs Regional Council operates various water schemes in accordance with its DWQMP which was approved by QWSR on 27 November 2012.
The Water Supply (Safety and Reliability) Act 2008 legislates that holders of DWQMP prepare and submit an annual report that compares actual performance with the approved plan within 120 working days of the end of the financial year.
