Water & waste

The major projects below will be delivered by the Water & waste group. This group includes Water projects, Water operations, Water infrastructure and Waste services.

Sewage station
A new sewage pump station in Lorrimer Street, Oakey will replace the existing and aged station.  This project is part of the planned upgrade of sewerage infrastructure in Oakey in a staged approach. Budget was allocated in the 2017/18 financial year to commence the project and over $1.5 million has been allocated in the 2018/19 financial year. Subject to future budget allocations a number of pump stations and associated gravity and rising main ...
Perseverance Dam pump station
A number of projects are planned for the Toowoomba Bulk Water supply dams (Cooby, Perseverance & Cressbrook) and supporting infrastructure. The aged water pump stations and raw water mains to the Kynoch Water Treatment Plant will be upgraded. Cressbrook Dam pump station switchboards This project continues from last financial year to replace the Cressbrook Dam pump station switchboards. Originally installed in the 1980's this infrastructure requires upgrade to meet current standards an ...
The Cambooya common effluent drainage scheme is being converted to a convention gravity sewerage scheme in a long-term and staged approach. Two related projects that are included in this activity of work are:    Cambooya trunk sewer main The upgrade of the trunk sewer in Cambooya that takes sewage from the southern area of Cambooya to the Creek Street Sewage Pumping Station (SPS) will continue. The budget allocation for this year's project stages ...
A new water reservoir and distribution main at Charlton will facilitate population and industry growth in the Charlton and Wellcamp area with the provision of a reliable and secure water supply. This area is currently serviced from a single connection to the Toowoomba – Oakey pipeline. The Nass and Wirth Roads trunk water main project is part of the Toowoomba Enterprise Hub Stimulus Project for which we have received a funding ...
The current water supply for Hodgson Vale is from five relatively shallow bores into basalt aquifers. Unfortunately water from the bores has high hardness, total dissolved solids and iron. This adversely impacts on the aesthetic quality of water from the bores. A compounding issue has been the reliability of the bores in terms of aquifer levels and safe extraction rates. A study has been undertaken and the need for a new ...
This project will deliver a conversion of the Kleinton waste management facility to a waste transfer operation. Landfill operations on site will cease and waste will be transported off site to a fully engineered facility.  Operating a facility as a waste transfer station gives more opportunities for recycling and resource recovery. It will improve the management of general waste as well as recycling in keeping with Australian standards.  The design of the facility will ...
