$1.5M Wallangarra Water Treatment Plant project almost complete
The new Wallangarra Water Treatment Plant is just weeks away from completion with the project expected to be commissioned by the end of July.
After commencing in April, the completion of the $1.5M project will secure a reliable water supply for Wallangarra and Jennings’ future generations.
The project reflects Council’s ongoing commitment to managing key assets and upgrading some of the region’s outdated infrastructure.
Built in 1968, the current plant supplies more than 200 connections in Wallangarra and 11 in Jennings with 150 kilolitres of water per day.
Southern Downs Councillor for Transport and Infrastructure, Marika McNichol said she is delighted to see the new Wallangarra Water Treatment Plant nearing completion.
“The new water treatment plant was a priority for Council to replace existing infrastructure and will be of great benefit to Wallangarra and Jennings residents,” Cr McNichol said.
“Council is committed to delivering projects which will provide our communities with quality infrastructure and water security.
“We are working to bring all of the region’s important assets up to date and this project is just one of many in the works.”
Structural and hydraulic works on the plant are nearing completion while electrical installation works are underway.
Landscaping and road sealing works will begin when the plant is commissioned in the coming months.
