This recent rain has been so refreshing and our lawns have come back to life! But there's also some other benefits from the wet weather. 

A week of solid rain has saved ratepayers $1million in pumping costs from the Burdekin Dam.

The Townsville Council making the decision to turn off the pipeline temporarily, reducing wastage from evaporation.

The more rain we receive, the better the benefits!
