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.
Woodbury Water Treatment Plant 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.
Marlborough Water Treatment Plant Construction of the Marlborough Water Treatment Plant was completed in September 2011; however, an identical treatment train was added in early 2012 to expand the capacity of the water treatment plant to a total of 100kL/d. It is a reverse osmosis plant.
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.
