Ravenshoe Reservoir Comes Online
Ravenshoe’s new 9.6m-high, 3.9ML reservoir has just been commissioned, bringing Ravenshoe residents one step closer to a clean and reliable water supply.
‘It’s fantastic to see all the planning and construction come to fruition,’ said Councillor Annette Haydon.
‘We’ve been working for a long time on a solution to Ravenshoe’s water problems and this is a giant step in the right direction.
‘The reservoir, new pipelines, intake upgrades and new booster pump have all been completed and installed.
‘Over the next 12 months we’ll see further advances in the scheme.
‘$8.82M has been allocated for a booster pump, water treatment plant and pipelines connecting Millstream, Bellview Estate and Cassowary Heights to the reservoir.
‘If everything goes to plan this large body of work will be completed in 2024.
‘When it’s all done the residents of Ravenshoe, Millstream, Bellview Estate and Cassowary Heights will have a year-round clean, reliable and high-quality water supply and boil water notices will be a thing of the past,’ said Councillor Haydon
