Nebo water project nearing completion

Nebo water project nearing completion

A major $7.1 million water supply project in the Isaac region is on track for an October finish after funding from the Building our Regions program.

The four-stage Nebo Water Supply Project will boast a new water treatment plant and a two-megalitre reservoir for the town’s 795 residents.

Mayor Anne Baker said the project would address critical water infrastructure needs in Nebo, enhancing water security, quality and reliability.

The project will also significantly improve firefighting capability in town.

“This is another major achievement for Isaac Regional Council and the Queensland Government to increase the storage of safe, clean drinking water and raw water storage,” Mayor Baker said.

Isaac Regional Council matched the $3.55 million it received through the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program.

The council and its contractors are working towards commissioning the new water treatment plant, reservoir and bores with connecting pipework from the bore field this October.

The connection of two additional bores to the network will enable six bores to supply the town, improve water security in case of equipment failure, and distribute water over a larger area of the aquifer.
