South Burnett Regional Council will be holding a meeting on Thursday (November 29) to discuss future water infrastructure needs in the region.

This follows the Federal Government commitment last week to fund a $2 million joint South Burnett/North Burnett Regional Council feasibility study to investigate new infrastructure options for increased water supply and water security in the Burnett region.

Council has invited agriculturalists, industry leaders and all interested parties to the meeting to share their views on water for the South Burnett.

The meeting will be held from 1:00pm to 3:00pm on Thursday at the Town Common Hall, Oliver Bond Street, Kingaroy.

“We invite all interested parties to come along to share and discuss innovative ideas about the future of water in the Burnett,” Mayor Keith Campbell said.

“There is no doubt that increasing the water supply into the Burnett will drive social and economic growth by providing significant opportunities for new industries to establish in the region.

“Given the importance of this announcement, Council wishes to take immediate action.

“For those who cannot make it to Thursday’s meeting, future opportunities to participate in the study will be announced in the coming weeks.”
