A moment during these testing times to appreciate our water stories – alive as ever
This edition, we share with our readers the following water story:
So far, 2019-20 has brought many hardships and drastic changes that are shaping our livelihoods. In Queensland, we are resilient, we have been faced with the worst and will continue to be tested. However, it is important to acknowledge for the lucky few – including majority of us working in the essential services of the water sector – that we also have much to be grateful for and to appreciate. Whether it is our privilege to travel around our beautiful state, the opportunity to stay connected with water, or simply to step into communities that band together during the toughest of times, we are particularly fortunate.
We are also showcasing a collection of photos from GHD's Richard Savage, who reminds us just how lucky we are ... in many different contexts and settings.
Charlene Wong, Engeny Water Management, also shares with us a collection of remarkable photographs from her time in Tasmania pre-COVID-19. Disclaimer: the sheer beauty in these photos may cause some to experience some serious envy during this “iso” time!
Finally, we share a photograph submitted by Urban Utilities' Rebecca Fluerty, from her water story.

Charlene’s water story
“One thing that struct me the most when I was travelling in Tasmania was that water comes in so many forms, yet they are all beautiful in their unique ways. For example, it was raining and hailing most days, but because we were up on the mountains those forms of water made the scenery more mysterious and magnificent. On the last day, the sun finally decided to come out, shining right above the mountains with the calm Cynthia Bay reflecting the mountains like a mirror.”

We want to hear about your water story and there is no better way than through the sharing of photos!
