Coalstoun Lakes Water is a not-for-profit community organisation run by volunteers for the sole benefit of the local community and economy.
We were set up to explore the potential to bring water to Coalstoun Lakes and surrounding areas following a $1.5 million Common-wealth grant for a detailed business case (DBC) following the ‘Just Add Water ‘ campaign. The DBC will explore a number of options for supply shortlisted in a recently completed report by KBR prepared for North Burnett Regional Council.
WHO will be doing the study? - CLW has engaged Verterra to project manage KBR who will undertake the study on behalf of CLW. All three organisations will engage openly and inclusively with all stakeholders during the study.
Be part of it
We aim to engage with all interested stake-holders to ensure that their opinions, needs and concerns are considered. This will include confidential ‘one-on-one’ interviews to assess the potential demand for water, pricing preferences and other needs such as assistance for irrigation development.
We hope to make contact with you in coming weeks and invite you to further informative events at the Coalstoun Lakes Hall. The DBC study is scheduled for completion by the end of 2021.
