New water system for Bororen

CLEANER water is on the cards for Bororen residents after Gladstone Regional Council announced a $390,000 upgrade to the town’s water supply system last week.

Gladstone Regional councillor Matt Burnett said the full treatment option would include upgrades to other existing treatment plants, bores and storage system.

The new water system is expected to be in place by July 1.

“Council was influenced by the community’s expectations and those businesses who rely on quality water for their day-to-day operations,” Cr Burnett said.

From July 1 Bororen residents will pay $308 annually for water — $126 more than their current rate.

Consumption charges will rise from $2.05 per kilolitre to $3.36 per kilolitre.

“Council’s belief is the rise will be marginal when considering the immense benefits that the community will receive from receiving potable water,” Cr Burnett said.
