If you wish to extract water from a particular waterway in the Moreton Bay or Sunshine Coast regions (such as a creek or river), you may need a licence.
The State Government is responsible for managing the extraction of water from State waterways. Information is available from The Department of Natural Resources and Mines.
Use the same water twice! Wash your car or boat on the lawn. This way your lawn gets watered while washing your car. For even greater water savings use a bucket of water instead of a hose.
