The first stage of the $7.1 million Nebo Water Supply Project has kicked off. Construction has started on the new rising main to connect new water Bore 7 to the Nebo borefields.
The new bore is expected to be online and delivering water to the town of Nebo in early 2018. The project is on track to deliver new bores, the new water treatment plant and reservoir by mid-2019.
About the Project
This essential project will address critical water infrastructure needs at Nebo, enhancing water security, water quality and reliability.
The Project will also significantly improve firefighting capability in the town.
This investment in critical regional infrastructure demonstrates Council’s and the Queensland Government’s commitment to sustainable regional resource communities.
Under the Building our Regions Program the Queensland Government provided $3.55 million towards this project, matched by Isaac Regional Council.
The project will deliver
- a new water treatment plant and connecting pipe work from the bore fields, enhancing water quality
- construction of a new 2ML reservoir improving water security, reliability and firefighting capability
- two additional bores connecting to the network, (enabling six bores to supply the town)
- works to ensure compliance with relevant Queensland Government guidelines
