Central and North Rural Weekly - - FRUIT SAFETY -

THE Queens­land Govern­ment has con­firmed Sunwater as pro­po­nent for the $352 mil­lion Cen­tral Queens­land Rookwood Weir project.

“The Palaszczuk Govern­ment al­lo­cated $66 mil­lion in the 2018-19 Queens­land Bud­get to progress this much-needed in­fra­struc­ture,” Mem­ber for Glad­stone Glenn Butcher said.

“Once con­structed, Rookwood Weir will have the abil­ity to sup­ply 76,000 ML per an­num of wa­ter for the re­gion – a re­source that will un­der­pin agri­cul­tural growth and sup­ply in­dus­trial and ur­ban wa­ter through­out Glad­stone and the Capricorn Coast.”

The weir will be built on the Fitzroy River, 60km south-west of Rock­hamp­ton. SunWater will in­te­grate the util­ity into its ex­ist­ing re­gional net­work which in­cludes Eden Bann Weir and Stan­well Pipe­line.
