Works are set to begin on the $10.59 million Moranbah Reservoir and Associated Works in May 2017 with practical completion planned for December 2017.
This essential project will increase the storage of safe, clean drinking water and raw water storage.
It also addresses critical flow and pressure issues that limit network supply and firefighting capacity in some parts of the town.
This investment in critical regional infrastructure demonstrates Council’s and the state government’s commitment to sustainable regional resource communities.
Under the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions Program, Isaac Regional Council has matched the Queensland Government’s $5.295 million.
What will this project deliver?
- an increase to the plant’s current one day water storage capacity to up to three days
- works to ensure compliance with relevant Queensland Government guidelines
- upgrades to parts of the reticulation network to meet supply and firefighting requirements and a new 15ML ground level reservoir
- a new supply main to integrate the reservoir with the existing reticulation system
- new feeder mains to town from the Water Treatment Plant and cross-connection fire flow water mains in the network
- a gravity diversion intake pipeline from the raw water sources to provide buffering in the 400ML storage dam
