Central Queensland Regional Water Supply Strategy
In December 2004 the Queensland Government, in partnership with local government, committed to developing the Central Queensland Regional Water Supply Strategy, a long term water supply strategy for the region.
Following the release of a draft strategy in December 2005, and a period of public consultation, the Queensland Government released the Central Queensland Regional Water Supply Strategy in December 2006.
The strategy includes solutions to meet Central Queensland’s urban, rural and industrial water needs over the long term, and was developed in partnership with local governments and other stakeholders to achieve the best possible environmental, social and economic outcomes. It complements the existing water resource plans and resource operations plans for the Fitzroy and Boyne basins, and will be regularly reviewed to ensure it remains relevant in the years ahead.
The strategy area includes the major regional centres of Biloela, Emerald, Gladstone, Moranbah, Rockhampton and the Capricorn coast including Yeppoon.
