State Government Updates on Emu Swamp Dam

Southern Downs Regional Council has been informed by the Queensland Department of Energy and Water Supply (2/11/17) that no further expenditure or actions will be undertaken in relation to further studies on the Emu Swamp Dam proposal due to the caretaker provisions that apply as a result of the Queensland State Government Election. 

Council understands this information has also been communicated to the Stanthorpe Chamber of Commerce who is seeking to take on the project.  Once the outcome of the election is known and Ministerial appointments have been made the Department will advise of the next steps.
