Moonambel Water

Wednesday 13 September 2017, 4:35 PM

Work is underway to determine the capacity of the community to pay for a reticulated water supply to Moonambel.

The lack of a town water supply in Moonambel is currently leading to some residents having to pay contractors for carted water. It also places the tourism sector at a competitive disadvantage to other regions due to the added costs of both carting water and conducting repairs to plumbing and whitegoods where ground water is being used to supplement tank water.

Council also believes that community safety will be significantly improved with a reticulated water supply, as it will support the Moonambel Brigade of the Country Fire Authority and residents in the event of emergencies.

Due to the significant socio-economic contribution of tourism to the Moonambel community and the prospect of enhanced water security and community safety, Council has listed a reticulated town water supply at Moonambel as a priority project and further investigations are now progressing.

Subsequent to a feasibility study completed in 2015, the Commonwealth and State Governments together with Pyrenees Shire Council have committed to further investigations into a town water supply for Moonambel with partnership support being provided by Central Highlands Water.

Residents of the Moonambel Township should have received a letter and short survey about the proposed supply, please get it touch if you have not received your letter.

Should you have any questions about the project you can contact Ray Davies at Pyrenees Shire Council – (03) 5349 1100.
