SunWater named as Rookwood Weir proponent
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.
