Share This Post

The Mount Morgan Water Supply Pipeline Project is a collaborative effort between the Federal and Queensland Labor Governments and the Rockhampton Regional Council. This initiative, with a budget of $88.2 million, aims to ensure long-term water security for Mount Morgan, fostering job creation and economic growth in the town.

Through this joint venture, the Albanese and Palaszczuk Labor governments, in partnership with the Rockhampton Regional Council, are working to eliminate the need for water carting and safeguard the town’s sustainability and quality of life.

This undertaking is expected to generate around 50 employment opportunities and provide significant economic advantages to local communities and businesses in Central Queensland. The Queensland Government and the Council are committed to maximizing local labor, suppliers, materials, and subcontractors.

Furthermore, this project presents an opportunity for the Council to execute crucial infrastructure enhancements that will enhance water security for the broader community. These supplementary activities include expanding and upgrading Razorback Road while laying the pipeline, as well as boosting reservoir and pumping capacity to accommodate the expected growth in Gracemere. This combined set of projects will meet the future requirements of both Mount Morgan and Gracemere. The Council is financing these supplementary activities as part of the overall project budget of $88.2 million.

The Mount Morgan Pipeline Project encompasses the following key components:

  1. The construction of a 28km potable water pipeline from the Gracemere Pump Station to Mount Morgan.
  2. An upgrade to the Gracemere pump station.
  3. The construction of a new reservoir and a new pump station at Lucas Street in Gracemere.
  4. The installation of a new pump station and a small reservoir at Moonmera, approximately halfway along the pipeline route.

This project is scheduled to be completed by September 2025, subject to weather conditions.
