The Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant was built to serve a country town at the center of a farming and grazing community. Since then, the population of Beaudesert has grown and the town has transformed into a significant regional hub.
As the population and economy grows, the demand for services like water grows with it. Without upgrades to the Beaudesert water supply, we will no longer be able to meet peak demand for water by 2021.
The Beaudesert Water Supply Upgrade includes three stages:
1. An immediate upgrade to the Beaudesert Water Treatment Plant, including 5.1 million litres of additional water storage.
2. The South West Pipeline, a 27 km bulk water pipeline connecting Beaudesert to the SEQ Water Grid.
3. The new 30 million litre per day Wyaralong Water Treatment Plant adjacent to the Cedar Grove Weir.
Long term water supply reliability in the Scenic Rim will support the continued growth of the region. Find out more about how Seqwater is planning for Our Water Future here.
