Whitsunday Regional Council’s $16.6 million water pipeline between Proserpine and Airlie Beach is on track to be finished in April 2021.


Latest News

A 6.5 tonne manifold (pictured below) has been successfully installed and connected to the water main in Cannon Valley. The manifold was listed into place via crane on Wednesday 24 March.

Over 20kms of pipeline have now been laid with major creek and road crossings at Brandy Creek, Myrtle Creek, Shute Harbour Road and the Bruce Highway near Proserpine. The final section of pipeline will be completed soon.

Once this project is finished it will allow the water to flow quicker along the pipeline to Airlie Beach, Cannonvale and the coastal communities and the new reservoir will allow for extra water storage.


Background

Council has received $5 million through the Queensland Government’s Building Our Regions program towards the new pipeline, which will provide a sustainable water supply for our growing population. The new pipeline is a major investment into a sustainable future for the Whitsunday region.
