If you nearly aquaplaned off Timor Rd last week because of the broken gravity feed town water pipe that flooded the road, you will probably be happy to hear the Warrumbungle Shire Council’s plans for the Coonabarabran sewerage system could score some of the NSW government’s $110 million Regional Water and Waste Water Backlog Program funding.

Lands and Water Minister, Niall Blair, said “For too long quick fixes and band-aid solutions have been the norm when it comes to regional water and waste water – but now we are delivering the right infrastructure to make sure our regional communities can grow and prosper.”

45 projects have been shortlisted from those submitted last year, with Coolah and Dunedoo sewerage systems also part of the council’s plan. The winning projects will be announced later this year.
