Bloomsbury to receive new water main

Published: 27 Apr 2023

Council is excited to announce a new 11-kilometre water main will be constructed from Midge Point to Bloomsbury.

A community meeting will be held at Midge Point Tavern on Tuesday, May 2 starting at 5.30pm, so council’s water team can assist property owners with any questions about the new water main and how they connect to it.

The scheme will work via an opt-in program by which residents will pay a connection fee to join the network. Only property owners who connect to the scheme will see a water access charge on their rates notice.

In recent years the network has seen major improvements including the installation of a new water main in Midge Point and the Kelsey Creek Water Treatment plant upgrade.

Residents who are unable to attend the meeting and would like to find out more information, can contact council’s Stakeholder and Client Support officer Andrea Thayer on 1300 MACKAY (622 529).

Works are expected to commence late 2023 and are proudly funded by the Queensland Government’s Building our Regions program and Mackay Regional Council.
