 Wynnum Wading Pool Update

Brisbane City CouncilThe Wynnum Wading Pool is closed at the moment while the Council are doing general cleaning and also applying a non-slip coat on the pool steps. At the same time the sand on the bottom is being cleaned with the pumps and filtering equipment being fixed and serviced for summer. No chemicals are added to the seawater in the pool which is constantly filtered during filling and during normal operations of the pool.

The Council is aiming to have the pool refilled and open before the September school holidays.

 Residents Advised to Conserve Water Usage

Brisbane City CouncilCustomers are advised to conserve water usage effective immediately due to reduced levels of potable water supplies. Seqwater has advised that due to record turbidity levels in the Brisbane River as a result of the extreme weather from ex Tropical Cyclone Oswald, the Mt Crosby Water Treatment Plant is currently offline.

Due to the shutdown of Mt Crosby, Queensland Urban Utilities and Seqwater are urging all residents in Brisbane, Logan, Ipswich, Redlands, Moreton Bay, Lockyer, Somerset and Scenic Rim to conserve water over the next 24–48 hours while the bulk water supplies are replenished. Mt Crosby is the region’s largest water treatment plant and supplies the majority of Brisbane, Ipswich and Logan city council’s drinking water.

The turbidity levels in the Brisbane River are four times the level experienced during the January 2011 flood event and are expected to take up to 48 hours to dissipate. Residents are strongly advised to restrict their water usage to essential requirements only, including drinking and brief showers. and refrain from any unnecessary water use until further notice. This includes: topping up their swimming pools, outdoor hosing and washing cars.

Please visit our website for water conservation tips: http://www.urbanutilities.com.au/Water_efficiency/.

 Manly Harbour Village Halloween Street Party

Brisbane City CouncilThe Manly Halloween Street Parade is the biggest event of the year in Wynnum Manly. The day starts at 11am Saturday. There are rides, a movie in the park and fireworks, among other activities. The parade itself starts at 6pm. Anyone who has made the effort to dress up in Halloween costume who wants to go in the parade needs to gather near the corner of Cambridge Parade and Melville Terrace. The parade goes down Cambridge Parade to the Esplanade then turns left and breaks up at Cardigan Parade.

There will be thousands at the parade so I suggest getting there hours before the parade or catching the train to Manly station and walking down the road. The Parade puts Manly on the map and hopefully leads to follow up business not just a one night boom.

Brisbane City Council provided $ 15 000 towards the overheads for the festival.
