Burdekin Shire Council will spend more than $2 million ensuring the Shire’s water and wastewater networks provide reliable service to residents.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis said $1.2 million of the 2015/16 Budget would go toward the sewer relining and manhole refurbishment program.
“Council also has allocated $250,000 toward the replacement of Sewage Pump Station switchboards and $350,000 for the refurbishment or replacement of sewerage assets to improve our network’s reliability,” he said.
“We have budgeted $500,000 for water projects which will ensure our water supply assets are up to standard.
“Council will install variable speed drive pumps at the South Ayr Water Treatment Plant to enhance network pressure and maintain positive flows in the Ayr and Brandon water supply network as part of continual upgrades to improve water quality to our residents.”
