Town Water Upgrade

Published: June 24th 2019

The Weipa Town Authority is responsible for the supply and distribution of potable water to a fire-fighting standard throughout the town of Weipa.

Parts of this water network require upgrading in order to renew the water supply and fire-fighting capability of the urban areas of Rocky Point and Trunding.

Works commence on 24th July and will include making signage, indicators, and positions of fire hydrants compliant, excavating and re-instating non-compliant mainlines, hydrants and valves, and excavating and installing new water lines and valves, where required.

On occasion, the water supply to certain areas will be affected. The WTA will provide one week's notice to any residents and business that will be affected.

The project is estimated to be completed in December 2019.
