Completion of Water Resource Plan ensures release of 17,200ML of unallocated water in parts of the Great Artesian Basin, Surat Basin

Posted by waterweek on 20 September 2007

Towns, feedlots, power stations and mines would be able to access 17,200ML of unallocated water being released in parts of the Great Artesian Basin with 7200ML available in the Surat Basin as general reserve water, principally around Inglewood, St George, Miles and Roma and a further 10,000ML to be made available across most of the wider Great Artesian Basin as state reserve water, reported Queensland Country Life, (06/09/2007, p.9) quoting Department of Natural Resources and Water.

Supplementary supply: Essentially, it would supplement town water supplies and for significant projects including power stations and some large coal mines.

To cover almost the entire state: The area that could benefit extended from Cape York in the north, south through Richmond and Longreach, to Birdsville and Goondiwindi and to Miles in the south. The water was being released after completion of the Water Resource Plan for the Great Artesian Basin.
