Bundaberg North water upgrade begins this week

Council will be undertaking construction on the inlet connection to a new pump station at the North Water Tower as part of ongoing work.

An increase in water pressure and flow will be on the cards for Bundaberg North residents once construction to a water main upgrade in the area is complete later this year.

From Thursday, Council will be undertaking construction on the inlet connection to a new pump station at the North Water Tower as part of ongoing work.

Council's Water and Wastewater portfolio spokesperson Cr Jason Bartels said the construction was part of Stage 2 of the water main upgrade, which was expected to be fully complete by September 2020.

“Bundaberg North residents are advised of the possibility of low water pressure in the Fairymead and Gooburrum areas from 10pm Thursday to 2am Friday while water main upgrades take place,” he said.

“We only expect low water pressure during this time, not a loss of water altogether.”

Cr Bartels said future works would be held throughout the year and once complete, would provide the area with improved water flow rate.

He said the project came off the back of other water works which had happened in the area recently.

“Earlier this year Council announced a $1.3 million project to upgrade infrastructure along Mount Perry Road, Queen Street, Fairymead Road and Tantitha Road,” he said.

“This water infrastructure involved the installation of a water pressure main and a new booster pump station situated on the Mount Perry Reservoir site.”

Cr Bartels said ongoing works would be a welcome relief for Bundaberg North residents and the community.

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

“We would like to thank everyone for their patience while work is undertaken.”
