Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House our request to provide the Redland, Cleveland and Capalaba State Electorates with a 10 year community water reform strategy that:


(1)    Combines the four remaining bulk water businesses and their bureaucracies into one;

(2)    Allows the State Government debt on functioning water assets to be paid; and

(3)    Disbands water retailer/distribution companies and returns the functions to Councils.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to respond to this request for a 10 year community water reform strategy in a timely manner and provide a timeframe for the elements of this strategy to be implemented.
