Residents in Canungra on the Scenic Rim say they've been blindsided by a decision to shut down a local water treatment plant, with supplies now being trucked into the drought-affected town.
We are running out of water.
It’s not just localised, it’s widespread through every state, region, city and town.
Rain is scarce, temperatures high, rivers are drying up or have already done so, aquifers are dropping.
With this, crops are failing, cattle dying, wildlife becoming endangered, drinking water is even hard to get in some areas.
This is the worst it’s been on record.
There are days when it feels we are on fire and nothing with which to put it out.
