A number of qldwater members have sought assistance in accessing basic monitoring and other equipment in regional and remote locations (e.g. online and portable turbidity meters). Other members have identified equipment which is excess to requirements but still functional, resulting from decommissioning plant (e.g. fluoridation equipment). While qldwater has informally provided a “matchmaking” service for some time, we are trialling a more formal way of managing this process through this page.
There may also be instances where members are interested in jointly procuring equipment in larger quantities in partnership with other members to achieve economies of scale. While this is not the main focus of this trial, we are happy to distribute the information and build a new process to manage it if there is interest.
