Built in 1989, the Landers Shute Water Treatment Plant is an integral part of the SEQ Water Grid. It can supply water to people between Noosa and Brisbane’s northern suburbs through the Northern Pipeline Interconnector.

To improve the long term capacity and reliability of this important infrastructure, we will be making a number of repairs and upgrades at the plant over the next few years.

The key projects delivered in 2016-17 included lime storage and dosing upgrades, sludge handling improvements and sedimentation tank refurbishments.
