Council announces plans to improve town water supply

COUNCILLOR for Division One Roz Frohloff delivered an extensive report at the November council meeting about the upcoming improvements to the South Burnett water supply.

Cr Frohloff said there had been a number of water main replacements completed across the region.

She said the water main replacements for Wickham St, Wills St West and George St N at Nanango that started on July 19 had all been completed and Alford St at Nanango was more than half way to being completed.

Burnett Haly to Alford, West Haly to Kurtellan and Knight Walter to Hodge at Kingaroy were in the initial stages of having the water mains replaced.

Cr Frohloff said council was preparing to commence more upgrades to be completed before Christmas.

Youngman Haly to Avoca and Youngman Venman to Banksia and Toomey Youngman to William will be under construction until December 19.

Drayton St at Nanango will also be getting a water main replacement and is expected to be completed by December 19.

Cr Frohloff said they only had one water main replacement planned for 2020.

From January 19 until February upgrades will be in place along West Wooroolin Rd.

Council said they apologised for the inconvenience the construction might cause over the next two months.
