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.

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 ...
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 ...
The $20 million Kingsthorpe and Gowrie Junction sewerage project will be completed this year with an allocation of $0.45 million.  Project works have been in progress for 3 years to provide reticulated wastewater networks within Kingsthorpe (520 house connections) and Gowrie Junction (200 house connections). The new network replaces septic tank and household wastewater treatment systems on small lots (under 2,500 m²) for public health benefits and to support growth. Works t ...
We have 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 our electricity or gas requirements.  The investigations identified multiple delivery options and pathways for which we might develop the resource with two of the most suitable options being: Production of electricity for use at the Wetalla treatment plant, or other facilities, or exp ...
This $3.3 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 an ...
The vertical expansion of Toowoomba Waste Management Centre (TWMC) has resulted in the current asbestos disposal area at TWMC no longer being available for asbestos disposal.  As asbestos from commercial customers can't be accepted, customers are required to find an alternative location for asbestos disposal outside of the Toowoomba Regional Council area. We have commenced discussions with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (DEHP) and planning officers with the plan ...
