The South West Pipeline will be the biggest addition to the SEQ Water Grid since completion of the Northern Pipeline Interconnector in 2012. A 24km bulk water pipeline will connect the Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant storage reservoirs to the new Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant. An additional 3km bulk water pipeline will connect the Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant to the Flagstone development area and the SEQ Water Grid pipeline network.
Planning for the South West Pipeline is currently underway. Pending completion of the design and project approvals, we expect to start construction in 2021. We will also build a new pump station and storage reservoir at the site of the new Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant at the same time as the pipeline. The pumps will help move treated drinking water between Beaudesert and the SEQ Water Grid.
