|Discover how Council provides safe, reliable and cost efficient water and sewerage services to the Capricorn Coast community through a vast network of treatment plants, mains, reservoirs, dams and pump stations.
Livingstone Shire Council maintains two water treatment plants located at Woodbury and Marlborough which source and treat water from storages to supply safe and secure water to residents living within the Livingstone Shire.
The Woodbury Water Treatment Plant is located in the locality of |
Woodbury which is 17km north of Yeppoon on the Capricorn Coast.
Commencing operation in 1988, Woodbury Water Treatment Plant has
a design capacity of 21.6ML/d. Prior to the commencement of operation
of the Rockhampton to Yeppoon Pipeline, the maximum demand placed on the Woodbury Water Treatment Plant was 18ML/d. This demand has been offset with the Rockhampton to Yeppoon pipeline now in operation.
The Marlborough Water Treatment Plant is a reverse osmosis plant that was constructed in September 2011; however an identical treatment train was added in early 2012 to expand the capacity to a total of 100kL/d. |
Each WTP treatment train has a maximum treatment capacity of 50kL/d and treats raw water sourced from the Marlborough bore site located on Glenprairie Road.
|Livingstone Shire Council is responsible for the management of the following water sources supplying water to the Capricorn Coast, Marlborough and Ogmore:|
The Capricorn Coast Water Supply system is a potable (drinking) water supply based on a conventional on-demand reticulation system. The system sources water from Water Park Creek and is supplemented by the Fitzroy River via the Rockhampton to Yeppoon Pipeline.
Water Park Creek is approximately 37 km north of Yeppoon. Raw water is pumped from Water Park Creek to Kelly’s Offstream Storage adjacent to the Water Treatment Plant at Woodbury (approximately 20km north of Yeppoon).
The Marlborough Water Supply Scheme is a potable water scheme where water is treated using a hybrid filtration-reverse osmosis treatment process prior to disinfection. The system sources water from two shallow aquifer bores approximately 2.3km north of Marlborough.
The Caves Water Supply Scheme is a potable water scheme that receives water from the Rockhampton Water Supply Scheme and is supplied via a pumped/gravity distribution system. The water is fully conventional treated water from the Fitzroy River.
The Ogmore Water Supply System is a non-potable supply based periodic flow distribution system where residents each have a small receiving water tank on their property.
The Fitzroy River above the Barrage in Rockhampton is the source of raw water that is treated at the Glenmore Water Treatment Plant and supplied to consumers of the Capricorn Coast via the Rockhampton to Yeppoon pipeline.
Livingstone Shire Council is responsible for management of the following water storage assets supplying water to the Capricorn Coast, Marlborough and Ogmore:
Water Park Creek Weir is a small 1.3m high concrete weir located on Water Park Creek. The weir has been the primary source of water for the Capricorn Coast from Yeppoon to Emu Park. Water is pumped from the weir to Kelly’s Storage which is adjacent to the Woodbury Water Treatment Plant which processes the Capricorn Coast water supplies.
Kelly’s Off Stream Storage is an earth embankment, 168m long and 18m high, with a storage capacity of 1,237mL.
Montrose Creek Weir is a small 500mm high concrete weir located on a rock outcrop in Montrose Creek approximately 6km west of the Ogmore Township.
As at 1 December 2015, there are 19 reservoirs located in the Shire that act as storage facilities for a number of water supply systems.
|Locality||Potable Reservoirs||Non-potable Reservoirs|
Water mains distribute water from creeks or river catchments to the treatment plant for treatment, to the reservoir for storage and to your home or business for consumption.
The connections include the total number of residential and non-residential properties connected to a water supply, but do not include vacant land.
The total length of water mains includes the reticulated water mains and the reticulation mains delivering water for urban areas.
