The site’s reticulated water supply
comes from our own dam via an on-site
water treatment plant. The site water
catchment is a well-protected native
vegetation area and treatment includes
fltration and chlorine disinfection.
Our water meets the Australian Drinking
Water Standards and QFF staff and Qld
Government inspectors monitor a range of
indicators to ensure safe water supply.
The QFF with Midell Water have installed
a sustainable onsite waste water
treatment. This plant eliminates the
carting of all waste water from site and
in doing so reduces the QFF carbon-
footprint by 9%.
