ROCKHAMPTON Regional Council has committed $500,000 to continuing the extension of Mount Morgan's sewer and reticulation network in the 2015/16 budget.

Councillor Cherie Rutherford said the project involved a significant expansion of the existing gravity reticulation network, which would service about 450 properties once complete.

She said it aimed to provide a solution to properties currently connected to inadequate systems.

"This has been a long time coming for Mount Morgan residents and we are happy to see the rollout of the sewerage network progress forward over the next 12 months," Cr Rutherford said.

"Updating critical infrastructure for residents in a growing region is a fundamental priority for council. Construction scheduling has been prioritised in order to first service the most critical properties with failing on-site wastewater management systems."
