Water bypass project nearing end
BURDEKIN Shire Council has announced it expects to complete construction of a 450mm diameter bypass pipeline at the South Ayr Water Treatment Plant by the end of the month.
The major project, which commenced in August, has involved extensive infrastructure upgrades between Rossiters Hill and South Ayr.
It will allow water from Conlan St bore field to bypass the existing water facility in South Ayr, directly connecting to the town water supply and providing greater water resilience for the region.
Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said the project demonstrated that the council was serious about water security in the region.
