Glenmore High Lift Water Pump Station to receive $2.8 million upgrade

$2.8 million in government grants have been put towards an upgrade of Rockhampton's Glenmore High Lift Water Pump Station.

Two government grants amounting to $2.8 million will enable the Glenmore High Lift Water Pump Station to meet the demand for increased pumping capacity for the next 20 years.

Fitzroy River Water (FRW) received the two grants to help complete an upgrade of the water pump station, which will aid in improving energy efficiency and the capacity to meet future demand.

This station is used to pump water from the Glenmore Water Treatment Plant into a distribution system that supplies drinking water to the communities of Rockhampton, Gracemere, The Avs, Nerimbera and the Capricorn Coast.

The Rockhampton Regional Council’s Water Committee chair Greg Belz said that the electrical and mechanical upgrades to the station will take place over a two year period, reducing their carbon footprint.

These upgrades may also provide opportunities for budding electricians or mechanics looking for apprenticeships in Rockhampton.

“We are extremely proud of our success in applying for a $2 million grant from the Australian Government through Round Two of the Community Energy Efficiency Program,” Mr Belz said.

The program provides $112 million in grant funding for energy efficiency upgrades to 170 local government and non-profit organisations around Australia.

“The total boost of $2.8 million will go a long way to ensuring the completion of the project,” Mr Belz said.
