04/10/2019 - UPDATE - Kingaroy Water Main Replacement Program

As part of the Kingaroy Water Main Replacement Program announced on 30 July 2019, in line with Council’s Capital Works program and commitment to ensure the long term sustainability and efficiency of our water infrastructure, Council’s water mains replacement program continues with construction works soon to commence on the renewal of the Water Main along Youngman Street, Kingaroy.

Council has engaged Roman Contractors to undertake the replacement of water mains, which have been scheduled for the following locations:

In order to provide a safe work environment, parking along Youngman Street during the main replacement works will be restricted and lane closures are likely as the new infrastructure is installed. Access to properties will also be affected for short periods as installation occurs. Due to the complexity of the main replacements in both sections of Youngman Street, Council will be undertaking consultation with customers directly affected by the works, including property access, parking arrangements and interruptions to water supply. Contact will be made with customers individually in the week commencing 8 October 2019 to discuss and determine arrangements to minimise disruptions.

Earlier preparation works will be required in some areas to improve the systems valves and to minimise interruptions to supply. Affected properties will be notified directly prior to these works occurring.

Council apologises for any inconvenience that this work may cause and thanks you in advance for your patience.

Please direct any enquiries to Council’s Water and Wastewater section by phone 4189 9100 or email info@southburnett.qld.gov.au.
