Rain keeps tumbling down over the Queensland interior, drenching drought declared areas with their best falls in years.

The rain, which initially focused over the north of the state, has shifted south in recent days as the weakening monsoon linked up with a low pressure trough.

The system is still loaded with moisture though, dumping huge amounts of rain over the state's inland.

Boothulla received a mammoth 126mm in the 24 hours to 9am, its heaviest rain since March 2010. Charleville had its best rain in four years, recording 54mm to 9am, with further 33mm falling since (to midday).

The rain even extended to the far southwest reaches of the state, with Thargomindah collecting more than its monthly average in just a single day, picking up 47mm to 9am.

Unfortunately, the heavy falls meant there has been flooding in some areas, including major flood warnings for the Flinders, Norman and Leichardt Rivers.

The good news is that rain will continue to fall for a few days yet. Whilst the system will weaken, further falls of 25-50mm are likely across the state's southern inland over the until Tuesday, before clearing on Wednesday.

Despite the weekend's deluge in the north, summer is barely a month old and already some regions are running low on drinking water. Supplies for farm animals and crops are being rationed.

Trucks are delivering water to parched vineyards in Marlborough. As river levels dip in the hottest months, water quality falls. Warning signs beside freshwater lagoons at Piha, Karekare and Bethells because of overloaded septic tanks are a familiar summer sight.

Toxic algae has been detected at 15 freshwater sites in Canterbury. North of Christchurch, people who draw water from rural supplies with shallow intakes must permanently boil water used for drinking, oral hygiene and food preparation.

The pattern is repeated most years. In all likelihood, the task of ensuring towns and cities - and the countryside - have access to clean and sufficient water, as well as water for recreation, is certain to become a pressing issue. It begs questions whether communities are adequately prepared to cope with water supply stresses, and whether agencies which manage fresh water are on top of their game.

---

New Zealand has immense water resources but much of it is in the wrong place. In some regions, limits to water use are approaching, crimped by supply or quality. All New Zealanders expect reliable access to clean water. The economy rests on its assured supply. As many as 200,000 jobs - in dairying, horticulture and tourism - directly depend on water.
