Sewer manhole lid
This project (also referred to as the Wirraglen Sewerage Project), is estimated to cost $5 million with $2.93 million allocated in 2017/18. It involves the design and construction of a sewage pump station and pressure main, and gravity trunk sewers. This will provide wastewater infrastructure to support the growth area of Highfields, generally north of the Reis Road trough to Meringandan Road and bound by Kleinton Road and Cronin Road. The project is part ...
Meringandan sewerage project
This project will provide trunk sewerage infrastructure to service the sewered areas of Rosalie Downs, Rosella Gardens and Rosella Highlands. The work will enable existing pump-out facilities located near the Meringandan State School and the northern-eastern side of Rosella Highlands to be decommissioned. Project works will include sewage pump stations, chemical dosing, emergency overflow storage, sewage pressure and gravity mains. Sewage will be pumped to the existing ...
Council has recently investigated options to develop the landfill gas resource at Toowoomba Waste Management Facility (Bedford Street).  Landfill gas utilisation solutions could potentially supply part of Council’s electricity or gas requirements.  The investigations identified multiple delivery options and pathways for which Council might develop the resource with two of the most suitable options being: Production of electricity for use at the Wetalla treatment plant, or other C ...
This project is to replace approximately 2,400m of aged and deteriorating 675mm diameter trunk sewer in stages. The new sewer will be a larger diameter pipe from the Wetalla Water Reclamation Facility (WRF) to Griffiths Street. The sewer will be located adjacent to the existing sewer along the Gowrie Creek / Mort Street corridor. Construction will be in stages over a number of years, subject to annual budget allocation. The new ...
This $0.7 million project will replace an under capacity sewage pump station in Lorrimer Street (west of Campbell Street) and improve the Oakey sewerage network to meet current service standards. Start date Construction to commence early 2018, subject to finalisation of land acquisition and design. Target completion date Completion is expected in June 2018, subject to construction commencement date and weather. ...
This $3.32 million project to stimulate growth in the Pittsworth Industrial Precinct, will provide critical infrastructure to service the remaining un-sewered area within the existing Industrial Precinct. Project works include constructing gravity sewer mains, a rising main and a sewage pumping station. Where possible, sewers will be located in the road reserve to minimise construction works within properties. This project will support expansion and development within the Industrial Precinct a ...
