Seqwater explains demand management - options to manage water demandThis video explains demand management and options to manage water demand. Our water can come from a range of sources. Demand management takes pressure off the bulk drinking water supply and can potentially defer the need for a new water source. No single water supply option can meet South East Queensland’s long-term water security needs.
