Water Quality Improvement Plan

In late May 2019 $3.9M funding for our Water Quality Improvement Plan (WQIP) was announced by the Minister for Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs, Stirling Hinchcliffe. This grant, combined with $3.41M from Works for Queensland and $1M from Council, will fund the extension of pipelines and augmentation of bore water supplies in the Ravenshoe Road, Carrington Road and Hastie Road areas of Atherton. In the Ravenshoe, Millstream, Bellview and Cassowary areas, an alternative water supply will be provided, or treatment capacity improved. The end result will be a reduction of the frequency and duration of boil water notices. Design is well underway and the work will commence later this year.

The WQIP is a joint initiative of Tablelands Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
