Capricorn Enterprise keen for water infrastructure now
THE best chance for critical water infrastructure for Central Queensland is now, according to Capricorn Enterprise.
The construction of the Eden Bann and Rookwood Weirs on the Fitzroy River to develop the agricultural industry is strongly supported by Capricorn Enterprise and has been one of the organisation's seven priority projects since January 2014.
Capricorn Enterprise CEO Mary Carroll said the development of Eden Bann and Rookwood Weirs is crucial to the region's water and agricultural future.
"Now is our best chance in over twenty years in securing the $495 million for these projects, which are supported by all three levels of government, as well as business and industry," she said.
"The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) currently being assessed by the State government is well advanced for Eden Bann and Rookwood Weirs and will be completed by March 2016.
"There is well documented scientific and economic data surrounding the proposed weirs which we fully endorse."
