The first stage of the $7.1 million Nebo Water Supply Project was awarded in August 2017. The four-stage project is anticipated to be completed in mid-2019.
The Project will deliver:
- A new water treatment plant, reservoir, new bores and connecting pipe work to the bore fields.
- The connection of two additional bores to the network, will enable six bores to supply the town to improve water security in case of equipment failure, and distribute the water demand over a larger area of the aquifer.
- Reservoir capacity will be improved with the construction of a 2 megalitre reservoir located at the new water treatment plant.
- The construction of a new water treatment plant will ensure compliance with relevant Queensland Government guidelines.
About the Project
The essential project will address critical water infrastructure needs in Nebo, enhancing water
security, quality and reliability.
The project will also significantly improve firefighting capability in town.
This investment in critical infrastructure demonstrates Council’s and the Queensland
Government’s commitment to sustainable regional resource communities.
Further progress at this stage include:
- Commissioning of new bore 7 is now complete.
- Bore 7 is now supplying Nebo with potable water. This now raises the number of bores supplying Nebo to five.
- Council has fully funded works to install a 200mm water main within Airstrip Rd, Nebo to supply water to the proposed water treatment plant to complement the overall project. Construction of the water treatment plant is scheduled to start later this year.
Under the Building our Regions Program, the Queensland Government provided $3.55 million towards this project, matched by Isaac Regional Council.
