- Round: 3
Hinchinbrook Shire will have its potable water secured for the next 20 years with construction of new bores and a raw water pipeline connecting to the existing network, to supply an additional 2.2ML/day to the Ingham Depot Water Treatment Plant (WTP). In combination with augmentation at the WTP, total production capacity will reach 5.2ML/day.
When complete, the plant will supplement the region’s water supply by treating water from the Herbert River that has become highly turbid due to flooding or run-off, especially during the wet season.
