Water upgrade nears completion in Burnett Heads

Water upgrades in Burnett Heads are nearing completion.

Burnett Heads residents will experience an increase in water pressure once work to the installation of a water main upgrade is complete in the area.

From today, work will be taking place to the final connection of Stage 2 of the water main upgrade in the coastal community.,

Water and Wastewater spokesperson Cr Jason Bartels said while water connections would not be switched off, residents may experience a drop in pressure.

“Council has been installing a new 300mm water main at Burnett Heads over the last couple of months,” he said.

“Workers are getting close to completion and will be doing the final connections this Friday.

During this process, workers we will need to shut down some sections of existing water main, with some areas of Burnett Heads to be affected by low water pressure around The Port and Burnett Heads town centre.”

Cr Bartels said once complete, the upgrade would provide the area with improved water flow rate.

“This project aims to increase the water pressure and flow not only for residents but also for future development in the Burnett Heads area,” he said.

Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey said the upgrade was part of Council's commitment in achieving quality water for the community.

“This $300,000 project is one of many happening around the region,” he said.

“At the moment we have works going on in Bundaberg North plus an $18 million project at the Gregory River water treatment plant, which is the largest investment project to happen in the area.

“It's all part of our goal to make sure we not only have secure water but nice, clean fresh water for our residents as well.”
