The Outback Regional Water Alliance has recently completed a number of projects contributing to their joint water quality program. The projects have seen 13 reservoirs cleaned, 200 km water mains cleaned, trialling of data visualisation tools, joint water quality plan audits and a regional water disinfection review to achieve best practice for the region.
The region’s strong collaborative focus on this program has contributed to over $150,000 in savings and the improved water quality in the region has been recognised by local communities and the broader industry. In 2017, the region is seeking to further leverage collaborative efforts and have been exploring regional strategies and approaches to solve challenges faced by small and remote communities.
The program recently has been announced as a finalist in the Australian Water Association Awards Infrastructure Category with winners to be announced at the Queensland Gala Dinner on the 8th September.Back to list
