Central Queensland’s Livingstone Shire Council will commit $6.6 million of its 2022/23 budget toward nine water infrastructure projects to be completed within the next 12 months, including valve upgrades, pump replacements and a new booster pump station.

The total spend will supplement funding already received for several of the projects, which had been sourced from State and Federal Government grants.

Funded projects include:

  • $2.4 million for the construction of a new water reservoir at Emu Park West, improving storage capacity by 4ML
  • $1.4 million to fund the replacement of filter media at the Woodbury Water Treatment Plant, and installing new air distribution grids, pipework, valves and process controls
  • An additional $1.2 million to fulfil repairs at the now 97 year-old Mt Charlton water reservoir, which is expected to begin operating in September 2022
  • $747,000 for the ongoing replacement of critical pumps and pipelines
  • $853,000 to fund the finalisation of rectification works at Kelly’s Dam and the installation of a new booster pump station in Inverness

Livingstone Shire Council Mayor, Andy Ireland, said access to safe and reliable potable water is critical not only to residents, but also to economic growth and environmental outcomes.

“I’d like to sincerely thank the support of the Queensland and Australian Governments for their contribution towards these important projects,” Mr Ireland said.
