New five-megalitre reservoir keeps tap turned on in Clermont
A $2-million, five-megalitre reservoir has opened in Clermont.
Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker says the reservoir is a key component in the broader plan to improve Clermont’s water supply.
“In relatively dry inland areas like much of the Isaac, with limited natural water assets, meeting the water needs of our towns has traditionally been a challenge.
“However, keeping Isaac residents’ taps flowing with top-quality water remains a high priority and we are spending $5.9 million in the current 2020-21 Council budget doing just that."
Water and Waste Standing Committee Chair Councillor Simon West says $1.39 million is being spent on replacement of water mains in Lime Street and East Street
An additional $1 million is going towards de-silting the raw water offtake structure at Theresa Creek Dam.
“The new reservoir will take total secure water in the Clermont network to almost 10 megalitres,” Cr West says.
