Fund: Royalties for Resource Producing Communities Fund
Category: Water/Sewerage/Waste Infrastructure
A new reservoir and other works at the Moranbah Water Treatment Plant will increase water storage of safe, clean drinking water and address critical pressure issues that limit firefighting capacity in some parts of the town.
The project will:
build a new 15ML ground level reservoir to connect the reservoir to the treatment plant
provide a new supply main to integrate the reservoir with the existing reticulation system
construct a 970m gravity diversion intake pipeline from the raw water sources to provide buffering in the 400ML storage dam
increase the plant’s current one-day water storage capacity to up to three days
ensure the plant complies with relevant Queensland Government guidelines.
The project will cater for up to 14,000 people and meet the needs of a growing population.
