Investment$27.5 million
Goal4. A sustainable destination that embraces and participates in the arts, sports and events and recreational activities
Strategic PurposeTo enhance Townsville's long-term water security and increase capacity to produce clean, healthy drinking water for the city as its population grows.

The process to construct two new water clarifiers at the Douglas Water Treatment Plant is underway, enhancing the facility’s capacity to produce clean, healthy drinking water for the city.

The installation of the new clarifiers is a $27.5 million investment in the future and addresses the unexpected interruptions to water delivery experienced in late 2020 and earlier this year.

BMD Constructions has been awarded the contract to construct the new clarifiers, which is expected to support around 40 jobs and be completed in mid-2022.

Townsville’s population is expected to reach 200,000 people in 2022 and with all the positive developments on the horizon, this investment at Douglas Water Treatment Plant will ensure we can continue to meet the demand for clean, healthy drinking water in Townsville as it grows.
